Creating a safe Alabama starts with the people of Alabama including LGBTQ and HIV-affected people coming together. Free2Be Safe Anti-Violence Project organizes programs and events to prevent and respond to violence. We conduct community outreach throughout Alabama to let people who need our help know about our programs and services. We provide training, technical assistance and support to community leaders, first responders and community based organizations in order to ensure that culturally sensitive services are available to the LGBTQ people of Alabama. We work to create a culture of respect and safety for all people.
