The Department of Justice is funding a Boston-area collaborative to tackle the problem of LGBT intimate partner violence, Fenway Health announced Friday, Sept. 30.
The Violence Recovery Program at Fenway is part of the organizational collaborative that is receiving a two-year $300,000 grant from the DOJ’s Office of Violence Against Women to help address LGBT domestic violence in Boston’s African American and Latino/a communities.
The anti-violence collaborative, called Transforming Ourselves through Dialogue, Organizing and Services/TODOS in Action, also includes the Hispanic Black Gay Coalition, The Network/La Red, and Renewal House.
TODOS in Action plans to engage in dialogue/leadership groups with LGBT people of color communities to better understand interests and needs, collectively envision new or enhanced services, share information, and provide leadership opportunities around domestic violence; increase culturally-grounded and accessible services to LGBT people of color who have experienced domestic violence; and enhance healing and services for African-American and Latino/a LGBT survivors of domestic violence through collaboration, training and advocacy.
