Support Every Survivor: How Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Sexuality, and Disability Shape Survivors’ Experiences and Needs

General Material
Published Date
August, 2022

In November 2020, FreeFrom launched the second round of their Safety Fund and prioritized distributing grants to queer, trans, Black, Indigenous and Latinx survivors. They sent $534K in cash to more than 2,100 survivors across the country and surveyed them to learn about what they need to get and stay safe, heal and thrive. This report details what FreeFrom learned from the process. 

The report expands the available data on:  

  • survivors’ finances, particularly how the pandemic impacted them; 

  • how survivors’ intersecting identities affect their experiences and the harm they’ve been subjected to; and  

  • survivors’ needs, their goals, and what resources will enable them to achieve success, including what alternatives to police would most help survivors feel safe and supported.
