An Online Resource Library on Gender-Based Violence.

Supporting LGBTQ Survivors

This section contains resources for improving services for LGBTQ survivors. Included in this section are resources for advocates, organizations, community members, and policymakers.

VAWnet's Serving Trans and Non-Binary Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence special collection explores the broad scope of violence against trans individuals and communities, particularly for people who live at the intersections of multiple forms of oppression. The collection addresses barriers to accessing services, including ways in which systems fail to properly support trans survivors, and offers guidance on how to provide accessible, culturally responsive, and affirming services to survivors of all genders.

For Advocates: Providing Inclusive Services
For Organizations: Creating Welcoming Environments

"LGBTQ people, families, and broader communities face numerous barriers to accessing the services or programs of community-based organizations. Some of these barriers are relatively simple to overcome, while others may require more transformative changes to the ways in which services are imagined and delivered. Service providers and organization can make a difference by working together to increase access to services and to advance broader movements for social justice.

Demonstrate Access is a free resource website with ideas and tools for community-based service organizations. It is designed to help providers and organizations identify barriers and make changes in policy and practice to increase access for LGBTQ communities."
