Here’s why data matters:
- We can’t end violence without knowing about it. If we don’t know how many LGBTQ people exist in the US, we can’t know how many are impacted by violence.
- Numbers are how resources get allocated. If the government assumes that the LGBTQ population is small, they won’t allocate resources.
- Actions to stop data collection on our communities sends the message that we aren’t worth counting.
At AVP, who you are and the stories you have to tell always matter.
We track hate violence locally and nationally to make sure your voices are heard. Give now

P.S. No matter what anyone says, you will always count to us. Help us
