LGBTQ Access Project

From 2012-2014, the Coalition led a national demonstration project in partnership with the Northwest Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse, the first of its kind to test and evaluate a regional strategy to increase access to victim services for LGBTQ survivors of violence. More than twenty organizations participated from across the region, including many Coalition member agencies. While the demonstration project has formally concluded, the Coalition and the Northwest Network have developed a joint stand-alone website, “Demonstrate Access”, with many strategies and tools for organizations to improve their accessibility.

Victim-Defendant Project

The Victim Defendant Project is a Coalition resource designed to help increase access to safety, justice and support for survivors of abuse who are accused of committing domestic violence related crimes. The project has published reports, developed resource materials and created tools that can be used by survivors charged with crimes, as well as those working with them either in a community or legal-system capacity. Initial support for this project came from the City of Seattle. Later activities were funded by The King County STOP Grant, the Horizons Foundation and the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women.
