NCAVP publishes two annual reports, LGBTQ Hate Violence and LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence.
"What's so exciting about the work NCAVP does is it's also about changing the narrative of who LGBTQ people are," she continues.
In October 2011, NCAVP
received their first HopeLine grant to help provide training and resources to NCAVP
members, community organizations, government agencies and first responders throughout the United States.
Another similarity between domestic violence in homosexual and heterosexual relationships is its prevalence, for "it is generally accepted that domestic violence [in heterosexual relationships] occurs in at least the same proportion in homosexual relationships." (66) Various reports and scholarly articles corroborate this, (67) and "domestic violence researchers and service practitioners [subscribe to the] view that domestic violence in LGBT relationships is just as widespread as domestic violence in relationships between heterosexual couples." (68) A NCAVP
report, for instance, indicates that domestic violence prevalence ranges from 20-35% among homosexual couples, (69) while another source notes that it hovers around 21% among heterosexual couples.
"As we face an administration which devalues the safety and rights of transgender people and people of color, we must work tirelessly to support transgender friends, family, and community members," Emily Waters, NCAVP
manager, said in a (https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/03/01/four-transgender-murders-week-alarming-trend) statement.
"We do see correlations between anti-LGBT initiatives and increases in hate violence," says Avy Skolnik, NCAVP
coordinator of Statewide and National Programs.
Among people who survived hate violence, the NCAVP
report found that people of color were twice as likely to experience physical violence as their white peers, and undocumented immigrant survivors were four times more likely than other survivors to experience physical violence.
The total number of violent antigay incidents reported to NCAVP
increased 4% in 2004, a year in which 13 state constitutional bans on same-sex marriage passed amid a dramatic increase in antigay political rhetoric, including in Michigan.
But to groups like CUAV and fellow member organizations that make up the LGBT-specific National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP
), the victim's story was all too typical of an underreported crime within LGBT circles: assault and/or robbery as a result of involuntary drugging.
That data (https://www.buzzfeed.com/dominicholden/report-anti-lgbt-violence-overall-down-but-homicides-up-in-2?utm_term=.ntjR6ZBxn#.tr018JoRO) seem to be in line with the latest figures from the (http://www.avp.org/storage/documents/Reports/2014_HV_Report-Final.pdf) National Coalition of Anti-Violence Program (NCAVP
), which tracks violence against the LGBT community.
, in its annual report on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender bias crime, reported 1,830 crimes against gay men and 700 crimes against lesbians in 1998.
THE NATIONAL COALITION OF ANTIVIOLENCE PROGRAMS (NCAVP
), a network of 25 community-based organizations, recently released a report documenting anti-lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual violence in 1999, and it looks like we've got a long way to go in stemming the tide of anti-queer hate crimes nationwide.
