Diverse & Resilient is a proud member and partner of the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. We recently released Wisconsin’s first statewide warmline/resource line for LGBTQ survivors of violence.  While this is a new program, we did receive a few calls in 2016 so we contributed to this report through our Room to Be Safe program. This is the first time Diverse & Resilient is a contributor to this report. Report is attached. To contact us through our Room to Be Safe line, call or text 414-856-LGBT (5428)
