The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) is a coalition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected anti-violence organizations that works to prevent, respond to, and end all forms of violence within and against LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities. NCAVP is coordinated by the New York City Anti-Violence Project.
NCAVP advances national policy initiatives, conducts research on LGBTQ and HIV-affected violence, training and education, and supports developing local anti-violence programs. NCAVP has a policy platform on criminalization and police violence against LGBTQ and HIV-affected communities, and several member programs are advancing local and statewide anti-profiling and policing campaigns across the country. Locally in New York, the New York City Anti-Violence Project is a member of Communities United for Police Reform. www.ncavp.org
