At Diverse and Resilient: We serve this community. We are this community. And we will stand with this community. We grieve the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and David McAttee. Yet, this is only one list of public violent acts caused by police officers, racism, and the institutions that uphold white supremacy.
Our pain isn’t felt only because of these lives lost but because we recognize the consistent fear and racial trauma Black people feel through historical systematic injustice. That is why we support the demands and efforts by African-American Civic Engagement Roundtable and Leadership Igniting Transformation, along with the many other Black, Indigenous, and POC led organizations.
During this time of social distancing, we understand that “home” is not safe for many LGBTQ+ people experiencing violence and rejection. Text or call 414-856-LGBT to connect with an advocate who can provide emotional support, help plan ways to stay physically or emotionally safer in your environment, and connect you to other resources.
Please note that this number is not a 24-hour hotline. If you leave a message, an advocate will respond to you as soon as they can.
