I am organizing for
Virginia Anti-Violence Project
Hi friends! I've doubled my fundraising goal for VAVP this year, and also doubled my own contribution. I'm hoping that you can help me make this the most successful GiveOUT Day for VAVP so far!
I am supporting VAVP because I believe in the power of their work. VAVP’s primary programs include advocacy and support services for LGBTQ-identified survivors of violence, including individual and group support, advocacy and accompaniment services; 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 and community awareness efforts that start conversations about experiences of violence and healthy relationships and sexuality in an LGBTQ+ context.
When you give to VAVP you are making a direct impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ Virginians! Here's how your donation makes a difference:
$25 = 1 hour of individual support/advocacy/accompaniment for a queer/trans person that had been impacted by violence
$100 = 1 session of VAVP's queer healthy love relationship skills class attended by up to 12 LGBTQ individuals
$250 = half-day training session to build overall community capacity to provide unbiased, culturally competent support to LGBTQ-identified survivors of violence
$600 = full 6-session support group for up to 12 LGBTQ-identified survivors of sexual or intimate partner violence
