DC Anti-Violence Project

DC Anti-Violence Project Formerly known as GLOV, DC Anti Violence Project works to address all forms of violence against the LGBT community. The primary mission of the DC Anti-Violence Project (DCAVP) is to work to reduce violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and transgender (LGBT ) individuals (and those perceived as LGBT ) through community outreach, education, and monitoring cases to ensure that the rights and dignity of LGBT victims are respected and protected.

DCAVP also seeks to assist victims of anti-LGBT violence by advocating on their behalf, encouraging reporting, and providing a community of support. For more information, visit www.dcavp.org or e-mail infoglovdc.org.

Mission: We are dedicated to eradicating violence against and within the LGBTQ+ community, engaging creatively with solutions through advocacy, community organizing, and survivor support. The DC Anti-Violence Project is a grassroots, volunteer-led project of the DC Center for the LGBT community.

"For so long, Marsha’s legacy has only been heralded by the LGBTQ community. Today’s Google Doodle will not only help teach many around the world about Marsha P. Johnson, it will teach them about the work of a movement that has been historically ignored and often purposely left out of history books. Today’s Doodle of Marsha reminds people that Black and LGBTQ+ history is bigger than just a month; it is something to be honored every single day." Marsha P. Johnson Institute #NoPrideWithoutLiberation 💖💫
