A Conversation with Beverly Tillery, Executive Director of AVP, the largest anti-LGBTQ violence organization in the country

NYC Anti-Violence Project (AVP) empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and supports survivors through counseling and advocacy. AVP envisions a world in which all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected people are safe, respected, and live free from violence. We are thrilled to be joined by AVP's Executive Director Beverly Tillery to discuss the organization's beginnings, current initiatives and future.
