Mission Statement

The New York Lesbian and Gay Anti-Violence Project was fonded in 1980 in reaction to neighborhood incidents of anti-gay violence and failure of the crimminal justice system to respond. The Project serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV positive victims of violence, and others affected by violence, by providing free and confidential services enabling them to regain their sense of control, identify and evaluate their options, and assert their rights. In particular, the Projfect's staff and volunteers assist survivors of hate-motivated violence (including HIV-motivated violence), domestic violence, and sexual assault, by providng therapeutic counseling, advocacy within the criminal justice system and victim support agencies, information for self-help, referrals to practicing professionals, and other sources of assistance. The Project actively seeks to serve clients from the full range of New York's diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive communities.
