Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual
& Transgender Task Force
We have a vision that ALL people will be accepted and affirmed and that LGBT people have access to survivor informed domestic and sexual violence services within our communities.
Who We Are
NJCEDV’s LGBT+ Task Force is a safe and inclusive group which promotes community awareness, education and training to affect systemic change to ensure safe and accessible services for LGBT survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Our goal is to provide training to educate all staff members of domestic violence programs and the community. One does not need to be part of the LGBT+ community to be a part of the Task Force, Allies are welcome! During our monthly meetings, we discuss relevant topics, share resources and discuss best practices.
