I am organizing for
Virginia Anti-Violence Project
Now more than ever, it's important that we're working to address and prevent violence against LGBTQ+ people as state-sanctioned violence is on the rise across the country. I am supporting VAVP because I believe in the efficency and power of their work. VAVP’s primary programs include advocacy and support services for LGBTQ-identified survivors of violence, including individual and group support, individual and systems advocacy/accompaniment; the facilitation of relationship skills classes that are centered in various queer/transgender identity experiences; training for professionals on how to deepen their capacity to serve individuals of diverse LGBTQ+ identities that have survived violence; large systems advocacy work to promote the inclusion of LGBTQ+ violence issues in local, regional, and statewide workgroups addressing violence and/or LGBTQ+ individuals and communities; and public/community awareness efforts that start conversations about experiences of violence and healthy relationships/sexuality in an LGBTQ+ context.
When we give to VAVP we are making a direct impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ Virginians, join me today!
