Victimization of Sexual and Gender Minorities in the US

This panel discusses findings from a recent Williams Institute analysis of the 2017 National Crime Victimization Survey, the first national dataset to examine the rates of victimization among LGBT people compared with their cisgender, heterosexual counterparts. In addition, panelists address the importance of this data, the threat to continued data collection on LGBT victimization, and the work of the Anti-Violence Project, a 40-year-old LGBT community organization dedicated to organizing, education, policy, and research.
