Responding to the Orlando Mass Shooting

As we face the horror of the mass shooting in Orlando and endless media speculation, we can also respond to violence against LGBTQ communities. The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs has numerous toolkits and resources to help us build effective actions and networks for addressing violence. For instance, "Rapid Incidence Response Toolkit: Responding to Violence in LGBTQ and HIV-Affected" provides multiple and detailed ways to respond effectively for survivor support, media communications, and organizing and advocacy.

The mission of the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs is to "empower 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."
