OutFront Minnesota’s Anti-Violence Program (AVP) is a broad-based effort to end violence and harassment against and within LGBTQ+ communities in Minnesota. We work in collaboration with survivors and community members to build safety and power – as well as opportunities for support and healing – through the provision of crisis intervention services, systems advocacy, counseling, community education, and outreach. We believe that everyone deserves to be safe from harm regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression. From the individual to the community to the state, we believe eliminating violence and harassment requires social change at every level.
