KCAVP recognizes that outreach and education to LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ people is crucial in order to address the issues of violence in our community, and to ensure victims' knowledge of and access to services.
Training and Education
KCAVP facilitates training on domestic violence, sexual assault and hate crimes in the LGBTQ community and tailors these sessions to meet the needs of any audience, professional or social, large or small, LGBTQ, non-LGBTQ or mixed.
We work with agencies to review existing services and policies, recommend changes, and if appropriate, assist with implementing those changes to better serve victims. An example of this type of technical assistance is KCAVP working with area domestic violence shelters to develop and implement transgender admission policies and advises how to train staff to be respectful during hotline calls and during intake of transgender victims of violence.
