New York City Anti-Violence Project

Nonprofit or community organization

Description

The New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) envisions a world in which all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) people are safe, respected, and live free from violence. AVP's mission is to empower LGBTQH communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and support survivors through counseling and advocacy. AVP was founded in 1980 in reaction to neighborhood incidents of anti-LGBTQH violence and the failure of the criminal legal system to respond. Today, AVP provides free and confidential assistance to thousands of LGBTQH people each year from all five boroughs of New York City, through direct client services, community organizing, and public advocacy. AVP coordinates the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs and the New York State LGBTQ Domestic Violence Network. In 2010-2011, AVP was named a White House Champioon of change for our work on intimate partner violence within LGBTQH communities and our Board of Directors received the Alan Morrow Prize for Board Excellence from the Stonewall Foundation.
