The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color (POC) community experiences acts of hate violence, including street harassment and physical attacks, on a regular basis in our respective neighborhoods. As such, the Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective of the Audre Lorde Project, believes the best place to begin work on putting an end to this violence, is at home.
The 4th Annual Safe Neighborhood Summit will focus on individual and community safety systems for LGBTSTGNC people of color, without relying on the police. Instead we will promote creative community-based alternatives to end violence through skill-based workshops and strategy sessions. This includes learning more about joining or creating your own local Safety Squad.
This is an important opportunity for the neighborhood to come together to create visibility of the violence that occurs against the members of the
LGBTSTGNC POC BedStuy community summit represents a critical step and opportunity for people to come together and brainstorm ways to ending hate violence. Find out how YOU can help be a part of ending homophobic and transphobic hate violence, register to help at Sunday’s event!
Sunday, April 22 from 2:00pm – 6:00pm at 375 Stuyvesant Ave, Brooklyn, NY
