Room to Be Safe is a state-wide initiative designed to help connect survivors of all violence to services, advocacy and safety planning. This page can help educate about healthy and unhealthy relationships in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities in Wisconsin.
If you want to talk to an LGBTQ anti-violence advocate at Diverse & Resilient who can help connect you to a provider or talk through your situation with you, please call our non-emergency LGBTQ Intimate Partner Violence Resource Line at (414) 856-LGBT (5428). This is not a 24-hour hotline. A call will be returned to you within 24 hours on weekdays and varying hours on weekends. You can ask for a phone call or text back.
