Nicole Engel About Us Photo

 

In my role in our program, I work both directly with victims/survivors, as well as with Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence service providers across the state of Minnesota to reduce barriers to service for LGBTQ victims/survivors. I am passionate about community education that empowers queer and trans folks in their intimate relationships, community-based responses to addressing abuse and violence, and community-based alternatives to healing and justice for LGBTQ victims/survivors. My partner and I are recent transplants to Minnesota and we are happily setting down roots here in the Twin Cities. I have a graduate education in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (MA, ABD) and spent several years teaching in this field before joining OutFront Minnesota's Anti-Violence Program.
