OutFront Minnesota's Anti-Violence Program is a broad-based effort to end violence and harassment against LGBT community members in Minnesota as well as to be a place for victim/survivors of violence to receive support, information, resources and advocacy services. We believe that everyone has the right to be safe from harm — regardless of sexual orientation.
We offer support and advocacy services to LGBTQA-identified survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, hate/bias crimes, and folks who have experienced any sort of violence, trauma, and/or discrimination based on their gender/sexuality. More than anything else we are here to listen, connect people with information and resources, and assist people in navigating systems, if they so chose. We believe that survivors themselves belong at the center of their healing process and that our role is to support them in whatever shape that takes.
At OutFront Minnesota, we work to create social change at every level-from the individual to the community to the state. In the Anti-Violence Program, we believe that this social change occurs when we:
- Work to prevent violence from occurring against our community members through education and increased visibility
- Help violence survivors find their own paths to healing and empowerment through the provision of safe and effective advocacy support services
- Work with other organizations to create a strong network of well-trained and supportive service providers throughout Minnesota
At OutFront Minnesota's Anti-Violence Program, we want to hear from you. In order for the Anti-Violence Program to create a clear picture of hate or bias related victimization in Minnesota, we need reports of your experiences as LGBT or allied community members. Read more »
