Modernizing AVP’s Hotline
These are tumultuous times.
In the past few years, we have mourned the loss of the highest number of anti-LGBTQ homicide victims in our entire history of tracking this information. Homicides of transgender women of color, particularly Black trans women, continue to be almost a weekly occurrence.
In 2018 we saw a significant increase in the severity of hate violence incidents, and reports of intimate partner violence in our community are on the rise. Every day, AVP hears from more community members who are impacted by this violence and hate. AVP must be stronger than ever to respond.
