Program Types: Anti-Violence Initiatives (AVI),

Anti-Violence Initiatives (AVI), works to empower 2SLGBTQ+ communities to end all forms of violence through counselling support, advocacy, and education. The AVI coordinator works to support folks with individual and systemic experiences of violence, and trauma, and works collaboratively with the community to navigate these experiences in a healthy way. We also work with community and local neighbourhoods to develop leadership to enhance and build external partnerships.
