Agency Description:

The New York City Anti-Violence Project serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive victims of violence, and others affected by violence, by providing free and confidential services enabling them to regain their sense of control, identify and evaluate their options, and assert their rights.

Our staff and volunteers assist survivors of hate-motivated violence (including police violence), domestic violence, and sexual assault, by providing therapeutic counseling and advocacy within the criminal justice system and victim support agencies, information for self-help, referrals to practicing professionals, and other sources of assistance. The Project actively seeks to serve clients from the full range of New York's diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive communities.

We also serve the larger community through efforts to educate the public about violence directed at or within our communities and to reform government policies and practices affecting LGBT, HIV-positive and other survivors of violence, by educating law enforcement and social service agency personnel and calling attention to inadequate official and professional responses.
