Media Outreach

This is a national survey but the impact is hyper local. You can amplify the importance of the survey by talking about it with local reporters and media outlets.

Here is the official press release for the LGBTQ Safe Spaces Preliminary Data Assessment.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays are typically great press outreach days. Consider these other tactics to engage media.

  1. Leverage local media relationships to provide a local perspective on hate violence – tell media why the survey is important and what your organization has experienced.
  2. Join with other local or regional LGBTQ organizations to issue a joint statement to all of your press contacts
  3. Share stories of hate violence experienced in your community using social media video with the hashtag #ProtectSafeSpacesAVP
