D&R Community Response

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.

Room to be safe

Room to Be Safe

Diverse & Resilient’s Room to Be Safe Anti-violence Program serves LGBTQ survivors of violence (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 virtual option. In southeast and northeast Wisconsin, we can meet with you in person. We advocate for and work with survivors of violence by 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-Friday. If you reach voicemail, we will return a call to you by the next day (or Monday if the call comes on a weekend).
