A large part of CVC's mission is to mobilize community groups to create safer and healthier communities and spaces. A book club can be a space that connects a community, strengthens communication between members, and brings people together to engage in and share important perspectives. Whether you have a long-standing club or are looking to start a new one; we've pulled together some great book suggestions and discussion questions that can help carry CVC's message into your community. 

Book Recommendations 

*Remember!* Because of the nature of CVC's work, some content can be triggering and/or highly impactful on individuals who have experienced victimization or have been impacted by the victimization of another. Please, make space to take care the feelings of everyone in your book club and address these topics in a sensitive way. For help with this, our hotlines are available 24/7.
