We Never Give Up the Fight: A Report of the National Women’s Community Survey

April 29th 9am to 10:30am PST

The Los Angeles LGBT Center, in partnership with Justice Work and 120 partner organizations, has released the findings from the largest and most comprehensive survey on LGBTQ+ women who partner with women in the United States. The study “We Never Give Up the Fight”: A Report of the National LGBTQ+ Women’s Community Survey,” aims to celebrate the expansiveness of its community, and use its findings to strengthen our movements, shift policy agendas, and increase funding streams where needed. The report analyzes the responses of 5,002 LGBTQ+ women who answered nearly 170 questions in a national community survey fielded from June 2021–June 2022. There are a variety of subjects covered within this report including an in-depth look at intimate partner violence within the LGBTQ+ community.

Join the National LGBTQ+ Institute on IPV as we host Jaime M. Grant to discuss the findings of this study and its implications for the DV/SA field.
