Effective January 1, 2022, Take Action Mon Valley (TAMV) will be rebranding and re-structuring our programming (this includes the transportation assistance program). The transportation program will now be seasonal and will start again on September 1st - December 31st
TAMV offers community consulting, workshops/training, and community accountability meetings to community partners, leaders, organizations, and individuals. Focus is around all forms of community violence such as structural/systematic racism and neighborhood violence/conflict resolution.

Systematic violence effects how people develop in communities and often effects them from reaching their full potential (John Galtung).
TAMV views community violence as a range of events including acts committed by neighborhood gangs; organized crime; systems; police and terrorist attacks. All inhumane acts; sexual violence; bullying; shootings in public areas; homicides and robberies etc.
Systematic structural violence is both visible and invisible. More specifically, there are institutional practices & procedures that adversely affect the mental, cultural and economic structure of a community. TAMV understands that these lend to the social conditions that cause neighborhood community violence (Johan Galtung).
Examples are withholding resources from a community, mishandling funds, and blaming the community for lack of funding to solve the homicides, etc.
