GLOV Co-Chair Leaving

Tuesday fundraiser offers a chance to celebrate Hassan Naveed's contributions before his July departure

The local Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence (GLOV) group, a program of The DC Center and one of the key community partners in combating area hate crimes, is hosting a fundraiser social Tuesday, April 8.

GLOV is raising money to continue major initiatives, including an LGBT-crisis hotline, outreach to community groups, LGBT cultural competency training, and collecting hate-crime data. Attendance is free, but a $10 donation is suggested.

The happy-hour event also marks GLOV’s first gathering since the announcement that its co-chair, Hassan Naveed, is stepping down. Naveed announced on April 3 that he will be leaving the organization in July to pursue a graduate degree from New York University.

”It has truly been an honor to serve as GLOV’s co-chair for the past three years,” Naveed said in an email to GLOV members and supporters. ”Our organization has grown tremendously and positively impacted many LGBT lives in our city.”

The Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence happy hour fundraiser is Tuesday, April 8, 5 to 8 p.m., at Mova Lounge, 2204 14th St. NW. RSVP by joining the event’s Facebook page.
