Side by Side Participates in Southwest Virginia Summit

This past month Side by Side participated in a summit on supporting LGBTQ+ survivors of violence hosted by The Action Alliance and also featuring the Virginia Anti-Violence ProjectHealth BrigadePlanned Parenthood, and the Nationz Foundation.

The day-long summit, hosted in Emory, Virginia, provided training and support to local educators and advocates looking to support LGBTQ+ survivors. Over 40 participants from throughout Southwest Virginia came out to learn best practices, get advice, and build connections. While Side by Side's youth programming focuses on Central Virginia, we provide training, consultation, and support to youth throughout the state.
