The Virginia Anti-Violence Project works to address and end violence within and against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities across Virginia.
We believe that in order to end homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and heterosexism we must also work against other oppressions including, but not limited to: racism, classism, sexism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, ableism and ageism.
We affirm and develop LGBTQ leadership as essential to our mission.
We work to end hate violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, state-sanctioned violence, stalking and bullying and harassment.
We work to promote respectful and equitable relationships, community accountability, LGBTQ visibility, access to survivor support, and affirming collaborations.
We are a member organization of the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs and are currently supported through Grant #09-A5942DV09 from the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services.
Throughout it’s history, Virginia has been a leading tastemaker in food and foodways. Our state is rich in ingredients, from the abundance of the Chesapeake Bay, across the farmlands and rolling piedmont, to the Shenandoah Valley and beyond. Hospitality is a key component of Old Dominion character, with everything from nibbles on the porch to expansive holiday meals presented with a sincere interest in sharing food made by hand and from the heart.
This is America’s First Food Region; this is the Birthplace of American Cuisine.
Celebrating it all is Virginia Eats + Drinks Magazine, a statewide publication dedicated to showcasing the commonwealth, all the wonderful things to eat and drink and all the incredible people that make it happen.
