"I'm anti violence"

Click here for instructions on how you can join the "I'm anti violence" photo campaign!

The Anti-Violence Project's "I'm anti violence Photo Campaign" coincides with a new advertising campaign running on New York City buses, subways, and in local media. By declaring "I'm anti violence," both the ad and photo campaigns highlight the idea that we must all work together to end violence and to keep our streets and homes safe.

We invite you to participate in this campaign and declare your support by creating your own personal "I'm anti violence" ad. It's easy--just follow the directions below to download a version of the ad you can personalize and then send us a picture of you holding the ad. We will feature the pictures on our site as part of our work to affirm and celebrate the efforts of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities and indeed all New Yorkers who oppose violence and hold the shared values of community, dignity and respect.
