The V. "I" P. (Violence "I" Prevent) Movement, LLC was founded by Anthony Butler, a life changing presenter, captivating speaker, thought provoking author, innovative consultant, excellent educator, and persuasive violence prevention specialist who decided to "do more" about our society's senseless violence problem.
We refuse to just "accept" violence as familiar and routine. We help homes, schools, churches, families, marriages, and businesses confront violence at the core! Our wisdom and insights about violence are rooted in Genesis 4. Interestingly enough, when Genesis 4 is analyzed, we see that violence occurred as a direct result of mismanaged personal pain. This pain leads to poor decisions and these decisions affect the home environment and society as a whole.
We address the "personal pain." This pain is the fuel for violence which often leads to more violence. This destructive cycle will continue unless courageous individuals declare, "this...stops with me!" Join us as we confront the underlying reasons for violence in unique and innovative ways.
The V."I" P. Movement, LLC provides training, workshops, presentations, marriage and family conferences, school support, community support, and more! Join our movement! Let's work together to confront violence at the core!
