Family Safety Center at Tennessee Equality Project Meeting

Posted By on Tue, Sep 23, 2014 at 11:00 AM


With domestic violence making both local and national headlines, including the recent murder of transgender woman Alejandra Leos by her boyfriend, representatives from the Family Safety Center are taking the opportunity to let the LGBT community know their services are available to victims of any sexual orientation.

Vernetta Eddleman and Debbie Coffman from the Family Safety Center will speak at the monthly Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) meeting on September 24th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).

The Family Safety Center, which combines civil, criminal, health, and social services for victims of family violence, has worked to make sure their services are LGBT-friendly. The staff has trained with the TEP, and they partner with the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center and HIV/AIDS nonprofit, the Red Door Foundation.
