As we continue to celebrate Pride Month, HBK is proud to support Center on Halsted’s Anti-Violence Project.

The Anti-Violence Project (AVP) at the Center on Halsted empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and supports survivors through counseling and advocacy.

AVP at Center on Halsted provides comprehensive individual and community programs for survivor advocacy and support to LGBTQIA survivors of hate and bias violence, discrimination, intimate partner violence, stalking, and/or sexual assault. If you or someone you know has experienced violence, threats, or intimidation AVP can work with you to help ensure your safety and provide the support you need.

AVP at the Center on Halsted is also a founding member of the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP). NCAVP works to prevent, respond to, and end all forms of violence against and within LGBTQ communities. NCAVP is a national coalition of local member programs and affiliate organizations who create systemic and social change. They strive to increase power, safety, and resources through data analysis, policy advocacy, education and technical assistance.
