About this non-profit:

When is silence golden and when is it born of fear? The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department discovered that members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered communities in their city were being attacked on the streets, facing violence in their own homes, and experiencing the same types of crimes as straight citizens. Instead of calling the police for help and reporting these crimes, these communities remained silent. This is the story of how the police department of our nation's capital learned to protect and defend communities that feared cops more than their attackers.
