NYC-based Organizations:

  • The Anti-Violence Project
    The NYC Anti-Violence Project is dedicated to eliminating hate violence, sexual assault, stalking, and domestic violence in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities through counseling, advocacy, organizing, and public education.
  • Audre Lorde Project – Safe Outside the System
    The Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective is an anti-violence program led by and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans, and Gender Non Conforming people of color devoted to challenging hate and police violence by using community based strategies rather than relying on the police.
    Offers comprehensive educational and outreach programs for youth groups, community organizations and faith-based groups across the five boroughs. It provides support to survivors, offers legal advocacy to immigrant victims of abuse and raises awareness about the connection between domestic violence and animal abuse.
  • Girls for Gender Equity
    A Brooklyn, New York-based coalition-building and youth development organization, GGE acts as a catalyst for change to improve gender and race relations and socio-economic conditions for our most vulnerable youth and communities of color.
  • Streetwise and Safe
    Creates a space to share strategies to stay safe from all forms of violence experienced by LGBTQQ youth, and advocate for policies that will change the way police interact with us.
  • Vera Institute – Common Justice Project
    Common Justice is an innovative victim service and alternative-to-incarceration program based on restorative justice principles. Located in Brooklyn, New York, the program works with young people, 16 to 24 years old, who commit violent felonies, and those they harm. Common Justice aims to reduce violence, facilitate the well-being of those harmed, and transform the criminal justice system’s response to serious crime. The program provides participants with a respectful and effective means of accountability, an equitable and dignified avenue to healing, and the tools to break cycles of violence.
