As part of Chicago's LGBT Anti-Violence Task Force: the UCenter for Health mission is to work to reduce violence against Same Gender Loving, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (SGL-LGBT) individuals (and those perceived as LGBT) of African descent through community outreach, education, and monitoring cases to ensure that the rights and dignity of LGBT victims are respected and protected. GLOV also seeks to assist victims of anti-LGBT violence by advocating on their behalf, encouraging reporting, and providing a community of support.
