The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs’ (NCAVP) National Training and Technical Assistance Center invites you to our series of webinars on supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking and the unique barriers they face in accessing services. These webinars are to support mainstream victim service providers to provide equal access to LGBTQ survivors.
This first webinar will provide a basic overview of LGBTQ identities, language, terminology, and concepts. Additionally, the webinar will consist of a series of activities and discussions to become more familiar with LGBTQ communities and the ways that LGBTQ communities are uniquely impacted by violence. Upon completing this webinar, participants will be able to describe the language used by LGBTQ communities, clarify the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation, and have a basic understanding of the ways LGBTQ communities experience violence.
Join presenters Emily Waters and Lolan Sevilla from the New York City Anti-Violence Project, for Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence in LGBTQ Communities.
