Founded in 1979, CUAV is the nation’s first LGBTQQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) anti-violence organization. Its mission is to prevent and respond to violence against and within LGBTQQ communities through peer-based counseling, direct assistance, education and outreach, grassroots organizing, and policy advocacy. Born in the wake of the tragic murders of Harvey Milk and George Moscone, its early focus on addressing hate violence was expanded five years later to encompass domestic violence as well. CUAV is one of the first agencies in the country to acknowledge the gravity of domestic violence in LGBTQQ communities. As part of the broader LGBTQQ social justice movement, CUAV works with a range of community partner organizations and service providers to build the LGBTQQ communities’ capacity to respond to, heal from, and prevent all forms of violence.
