Media Integrity Statement

DC AVP is run by volunteers dedicated to the eradication of violence. We work closely with community organizations and those impacted by violence. When possible and appropriate, we strive to uplift the voices of survivors and victims who wish to share their stories. 

DC AVP communications team volunteers can be available to comment on stories relating to: 

  • Trends of violence against the DC LGBTQ community; 
  • Campaigns and efforts we're directly involved in or running around anti-LGBTQ violence; 
  • Outcomes of specific cases or judicial decisions, where appropriate; 
  • Systemic violence against the LGBTQ community
