The National LGBTQ Institute on IPV
The National LGBTQ Institute on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a project of the Los Angeles LGBT Center in close collaboration with the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs and In Our Own Voices, Inc.
The goal of the LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence Institute is to significantly enhance the safety, well-being, support, and health of LGBTQ+ intimate partner and domestic violence survivors throughout the United States.
We Keep Us Safe.
The Institute expands the capacity of public and private agencies to provide culturally relevant, survivor-centered LGBTQ IPV intervention and prevention services — including to LGBTQ persons from racially and ethnically-diverse communities. . This is made possible through ongoing input from providers, experts, and consumers to offer state-of-the-art training and technical assistance.
The program will also enhance the visibility of LGBTQ-specific IPV needs, interventions, and strategies. Additionally, it will conduct research to identify and disseminate evidence-informed interventions and oversee policy initiatives that have a meaningful impact on the quality, scope, and accessibility of LGBTQ IPV services nationwide.
