We understand that individuals with marginalized identities (ALANAM people, LGBTQIA people, disabled people, etc.) may face additional barriers when accessing resources after instances of interpersonal and sexual violence. Racism, homophobia/transphobia, ableism, and other forms of oppression have often unfortunately often existed in institutions that are meant to support survivors.
We on the confidential advocacy staff at Elon are committed to providing culturally humble and anti-oppression services to all survivors at Elon. However, we also recognize that some survivors may feel more comfortable accessing an identity or community specific resource, and therefore have gathered some here for your use.
We know that not all identities are represented here, and that some communities have 24-7 crisis lines while others do not. This is unfortunately reflective of what resources are available, but we are always open to additions to this list and will continue to add as we are made aware of other resources. Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions or concerns.
