The primary mission of Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence (GLOV) is to work to reduce violence against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and transgender (LGBT ) individuals (and those perceived as LGBT ) through community outreach, education, and monitoring cases to ensure that the rights and dignity of LGBT victims are respected and protected. GLOV also seeks to assist victims of anti-LGBT violence by advocating on their behalf, encouraging reporting, and providing a community of support. For more information, visit or e-mail
