Folks who identify as LGBTQ+ may have concerns about reporting an incident of violence due to homophobia, queerphobia, biphobia, and transphobia from law enforcement, service providers, campus officials, and even advocates.  All LGBTQ+ survivors have a right to affirming and supportive resources at the Campus Violence Response Center (CVRC).

Kate Rawson, the LGBTQ+ Advocacy and Training Coordinator for the CVRC, is available for all students who need advocacy support.  Additionally, all staff in the CVRC have been trained in Safe Zone, Safe Zone 2, and Trans Zone with additional training provided by Kate to assist in building the capacity of all staff to provide affirming and supportive advocacy and counseling service to LGBTQ+ survivors.

CVRC staff are committed to serving LGBTQ+ survivors by providing accessible, free, culturally competent, and confidential advocacy and direct services to all survivors and their allies.
