AWS recognizes that lesbian, bisexual, queer women and transgender survivors of violence face various and often compounded forms of oppression, including homophobia, prejudice and racism.  To better address the needs of queer survivors, who often avoid approaching conventional programs offered to mainstream populations, AWS developed the Queer Asian Women and Transgender Support (QAWTS) Program. QAWTS aims to expand the dialogue about intimate forms of violence and engage communities in developing effective responses to violence.
