We center our work on those furthest from justice and those historically excluded by systems that were not designed with us or for us.
We work for the liberation of all Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color.
We stand in solidarity with all movements that fight for liberation, including Black Lives Matter, Indigenous rights, immigrant rights, reproductive rights, and more.
We are not free until we are all free.
Diverse & Resilient’s Room to Be Safe anti-violence program serves LGBTQ survivors of violence (e.g., intimate partner, sexual, hate violence, bullying, as well as religious, police, and state-sanctioned violence) throughout Wisconsin.
Text or call (414) 856-LGBT to connect with an advocate. Our advocates can talk or text with you via phone or a virtual option. In Southeast and Northeast Wisconsin, we can meet with you in person.
We advocate for and work with survivors of violence by providing individual counseling & advocacy, information & referral, safety planning, and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities in Wisconsin.
Please note that this number is not a 24-hour hotline. The line has advocates answering it Monday through Friday. If you reach our voicemail, we will return your call by the next day or Monday, if the call comes on the weekend.
