It’s alarming and disheartening to receive daily emails, tweets and facebook messages from Greenpoint residents who are scared because of the recent violent events that have taken place in the area, including a rape, a missing woman and yesterday’s pistol whipping in broad daylight.
Tomorrow – Tuesday August 13, 2013 at 7pm there will be an Anti-Violence Project Training (AVP) at Greenpoint Reformed Church (136 Milton St) on street safety and hate violence. If you identify as a woman or an LGBTQ person, make sure to attend.
AVP’s “trainings and workshops provide participants with information on the impact of hate motivated violence, safety planning strategies, tips on preventing or reducing the impact of violence, information on how to create LGBTQH [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV+] inclusive organizations, and how to support the needs of LGBTQ survivors of violence.”
For more information visit www.avp.org and feel free to email cb at greenpointchurch.org with any questions about the event.
