” Picking up the nod for second-best scho0l for LGBTs was New York University. The final outcome of Unigo’s national polling effort comes with some analysis: Bennington’s focus [is] on creating a student body” committed to envisioning and acting towards social change is sure to produce students with the drive and, more importantly, the skills to work towards LGBT equality.
At least one student was less than convinced about the news that Bennington is best in tolerance, acceptance and educational opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, telling a local Bennington reporter that, if persons were asked about “LG-friendly schools‘ the ranking might be more accurate, but definitely not LGBT.” To her way of thinking, bisexual students and transgender students still suffer to much alienation, rejection and discrimination at Bennington and most other universities.
Advocates provide information about protection orders for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking, and about what to expect in civil and criminal court.
Advocates may be able to provide referrals to specialized legal resources including attorneys.
An advocate can help a survivor identify and access community resources and develop a plan for leaving the shelter, while a children’s advocate can support her children.
In communities without shelters, and for male survivors of domestic violence, programs can connect survivors with local safe homes, or with shelters in other regions of the state.
The network’s purpose is to facilitate cooperation, share resources, to raise public awareness, and promote effective public education.
