Most coordinated community responses (CCRs) have only informal arrangements to respond to violence with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities. Often ‘heterosexually centered’ agencies do the best they can with no specific policies or resources. CCR members need to consult, listen and consider what culturally specific communities need; we can identify resources and experiences to learn how we respond to LGBTQ cases. This webinar is not a 101 training about LGBTQ needs. It showcases one advocate’s statewide experience of LGBTQ legal advocacy cases, and offers your CCR specific steps to make responses to LGBTQ cases more effective, given limited resources.
