Audre Lorde Project

The Audre Lorde Project is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color center for community organizing, focusing on the New York City area. Through mobilization, education and capacity-building, they work for community wellness and progressive social and economic justice. Third Wave is funding their Safe OUTside the System (SOS) program, a unique, grassroots model based in Transformative Justice strategies. SOS relies on the community to prevent and ultimately intervene in anti-LGBT violence. Through the Safe Neighborhoods campaign, SOS will recruit and train community-based businesses and institutions to be safe space hubs for LGBTQ youth of color. This strategy will increase the safety of LGBTQ youth in a way that builds accountability within communities without reliance on the criminal/legal system. Link: Audre Lorde Project
