June is Pride Month and we stand with and support our LGBTQIA allies.
LGBTQIA people are more likely to experience domestic and sexual violence.
Abusive partners in LGBTQIA relationships use all the same tactics to gain power and control as abusive partners in heterosexual relationships — physical, sexual or emotional abuse, financial control, isolation and more.
Help us bring awareness throughout June.
Ending Domestic & Sexual Violence
We have a longstanding and well-respected history for building partnerships, providing training, developing resources and tools, and advocating for state and federal public policy.
From advocacy centers and advice, to educational materials and training, we work to provide our communities with the best information in helping victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
