V Game is an innovative technology-based project that addresses sexual violence against young women aged 12 to 25, who are most at risk of this violence, often have least access to supports, and rarely report their victimization to police, parents, or other adults. A mobile game for cell phones will be created in partnership with diverse youth and their service providers. The game will highlight issues of sexual assault, needs and rights of victims, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and information and resources to support young victims of sexual violence and their peers.
RePlay: Finding Zoe is a unique online video game that promotes the creation of healthy, equal, and non-violent relationships between girls and boys.
RePlay is a video game that engages players in a fun experience and promotes attitudes and skills that girls and boys aged 8 to 14 need to create healthy, equal interpersonal relationships. It is a collaborative initiative led by the Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children (METRAC), and its narrative and gameplay fosters learning about healthy relationships and communication, warning signs of violence, diversity, community help/resources, and the prevention of sexism and violence against girls and women. The game will be released publically in May 2007.
