Rainbow Response Coalition
Rainbow Response is a grassroots coalition that brings together organizations and leaders from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) communities, along with domestic violence (DV) organizations and government agencies. Our coalition building began with several individuals discussing projects underway by disparate organizations that appeared very similar, concerned about the duplication of efforts and the lost synergies by “working in a vacuum.” Both local and national LGBTQ and DV organizations now participate in the coalition, along with several committed individual members not affiliated with a member organization.
The Rainbow Response Coalition envisions a collective response to intimate partner violence within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning communities where resources, support and education are accessible to all within the D.C. Metropolitan community.
Rainbow Response meets at 7:00 PM on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at:
DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence
5 Thomas Circle, NW Washington, DC 20005
The meetings are open to all who are interested.
