MRV CARES is a collaboration of the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce, Sugarbush, Mad River Glen, Stand Up Resources, and Lawson’s Finest Liquids. Collectively as a community they decided to stand up to gender base violence, and work towards creating a safer community.


They are achieving this goal by:

  • Creating signage that creates a community statement of safety.
  • Providing resources to report or gain support for victims and survivors of gender-based crimes.
  • Bringing in the training for businesses and staff by Anna Nasset of Stand Up Resources.
