Live Without Fear 2017
At the NYC Anti-Violence Project, we’re here for you whenever, wherever. Volunteers are ready to answer our hotline 24/7. Counselors are ready to talk one-on-one. Lawyers are ready to advocate for you in court. We organize LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities to create a culture of respect and safety throughout NYC.
Here’s what's happening: a 45% increase in hotline calls. A 46% spike in reports of hate violence. A 67% increase in new clients seeking counseling.
This is how you can help. Set up your own fundraising page by clicking the gray “Set Up Your Fundraiser” button up on the right. Tell your story of what AVP means to you. Share your page with friends and family, and ask them to sustain AVP’s crucial work. We’ve put together a detailed fundraising guide walking you through every step of the process. Together, we will raise $30,000 to help AVP remain a lifeline for survivors of violence.
We envision a world in which all LGBTQ and HIV-affected people are safe, respected, and #livewithoutfear. Help us make it a reality.
