Descripción

The Network/La Red is a survivor-led, social justice organization with over 30 years’ experience working to end partner abuse/domestic violence in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, SM, polyamorous, and queer communities. Our organization and staff are recognized locally and nationally as experts in providing survivor-centered services and as thought leaders on the issue of LGBTQ+ partner abuse. We blend our history and commitment to being survivor-led, our analysis of LGBTQ+ partner abuse, and our commitment to being an anti-oppressive organization to create a unique framework that is the foundation of our survivor-centered approach. 

 We are who we work with—the staff, volunteers, and board of directors of TNLR are members of the very communities the organization serves. We believe that survivors are the experts in their own lives and are therefore committed to centering survivor voices and leadership in all aspects of our work. While we offer services for survivors of partner abuse, we also organize and educate about the issue to create the change we believe is possible for our communities.
