Published in 2001, this booklet by Katherine Whitlock made a call for dialogue on hate related violence and hate crimes legislation. In her acknowledgements Kay wrote: "The publication of this Justice Visions working paper on hate violence reflects the deep spiritual and social commitment of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) to address the root causes, and not only the most visible symptoms, of hatred, intolerance, and violence."
Nurturing the emergence of an LGBT movement that resists the U.S. government’s perpetual “war on terrorism” and challenges militarism, the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) believes that LGBT anti-violence work must expand to include the violence of the state. The organization has combated internal and external homophobia, heterosexism, and transphobia in ways that demonstrate its deep-rooted commitment to the Quaker intention to speak to that of God in every person.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
