VAVP was at Black Pride RVA’s Day of Purpose Event on July 17th!
On July 17th, 2021, members of our staff (including our pictured Survivor Support Team, Cat Lamb and Tasha Smith, our Communications Coordinator Austin Laingen, and our ED Ebony Clark) tabled at Black Pride RVA’s Day of Purpose Event! This event was a great opportunity for local groups to get exposure while supporting Black Queer Virginians, and we were more than excited to participate.
It was so refreshing to be in community with y’all again, and even the heat couldn’t stop everyone from having a blast! We spoke with members of the community, connected with other local organizations & small businesses, and handed out pamphlets/resource cards. We were also blown away by the number of people who signed up to be potential volunteers for VAVP in the future – we can’t thank you all enough for your support as we continue to fight for an end to violence across the state of Virginia.
Keep an eye out for VAVP at future community events!
