BE a Conqueror!
Did you know that same-sex partner violence and abuse is a HUGE almost unspoken problem in the LGBT community. According to the CDC, 46 percent of lesbian women and 40 percent of gay men have experienced same-sex intimate partner abusive relationships.
VIP is PROUD to ANNOUNCE our initial phase to create, develop, organize, and fund the SSPA Empowerment Fund.
When complete, SSPA will be a 501c3 non-profit organization that will provide outreach, education, shelter, and legal assistance and funds for individuals who are have been victimized by a same-sex intimate partner. We hope to raise $10,000 in the next two months to kickstart the fund and organization and $250,000 by the end of 2017.
This severe and often silent issue in our community is in desperate need of a grassroots statistical discovery campaign and immediate assistance in funding legal proceedings and champions for victims who have suffered and/or are currently suffering from an abuser.
