Community United Against Violence

Vision: CUAV works to build the power of LGBTQ communities to transform violence and oppression. CUAV supports the healing and leadership of those impacted by abuse and mobilize broader communities to replace cycles of trauma with cycles of safety and liberation.

Impact: CUAV mobilizes members to participate in campaigns led by coalition partners. As members of FREE-SF, CUAV helped to win due process for immigrant youth in 2009, and a resolution limiting collaboration between local law enforcement and federal immigration in 2011, and again in 2015. In 2015, as part of the No New Jail SF Coalition, CUAV helped reject the proposal to construct a new jail in SF.
