This week we are spotlighting The Network/La Red, a survivor-led, social justice organization that works to end partner abuse in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, BDSM, polyamorous, and queer communities.
Their mission states; "Rooted in anti-oppression principles, our work aims to create a world where all people are free from oppression. We strengthen our communities through organizing, education, and the provision of support services."
Through their website, they provide many resources such as a 24-Hour hotline, housing pathway programs, support groups, individual support, a survivor leadership series, and a "How to Help a Friend" guide.
Podcast recommendation: Domestic Abuse Project. In this crossover episode with the TC Pride Podcast, Eva Wood and Aaron Zimmerman discuss the domestic abuse that occurs in LGBTQ communities.
