    The Network/La Red is a survivor-led, social justice organization that works to end partner abuse in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, SM, polyamorous, and queer communities. Rooted in anti-oppression principles, our work aims to create a world where all people are free from oppression. We strengthen our communities through organizing, education, and the provision of support services.

    The Network La Red understands oppression to be an imbalance of power intrinsically linked to the privileges bestowed on some at the expense of others, based on but not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender expression and identity, class, ability, sexuality, religion, citizenship status, age, language capacity and history of incarceration and court involvement.
    Partner abuse exists to achieve and maintain control, and reflects and perpetuates the larger violent culture which condones and rewards interpersonal, institutional and imperialist abuse of power in order to control and/or exploit groups of people. The Network/La Red links domestic violence to all other forms of violence, oppression and abuse, because the values and tactics behind each are identical.

    On Sex Positive Me, we explore all aspects of sex and relationships, ranging from Fetishes and BDSM to Ethical Non-monogamy and LGBTQ issues. Sex Positive Me destigmatizes sexual practices and relationships while reconciling reality with myths & misconceptions.

    Angelique Luna is a Sex & Relationship Expert and Intuitive Life Coach who helps individuals and couples to gain confidence in communicating their sexual desires and needs.  In 2008 she sought out therapy to deal with a family tragedy. When therapists learned about her sexuality as a bisexual swinger, they focused more on questioning her lifestyle than helping through her trauma. She recognized that the therapy world was uncomfortable talking about sex that wasn’t heterosexual cisgender monogamous.  That experience lead to Angelique becoming a Certified Kink Aware Professional & Sex Educator so she could be an advocate for sexual freedom.  She helps individuals and couples to better communicate about sex such as their sexual needs & desires with their partners, have a better understanding of their sexuality, and how to talk to their children about sex. 
    John C. Luna in his original career, John was an entrepreneur, author, professional educator and software developer. After 12+ years in the swinger, fetish and BDSM lifestyles, he has started a new chapter of his life educating others on alternative relationships and human sexuality. He lectures on non-monogamy, bisexuality, safe sexual practices, BDSM and other kink related topics. He is a tantra & Tai Chi practitioner, a graduate of the Atlanta Institute of Tantra & Divine Sexuality and offers
    Tantra healing services. He coaches those seeking to become more comfortable and confident in their sexual identity, sexual attraction and/or alternative lifestyle.

    Flare's Mission:
    "We started Flare to change the industry and offer a modern, practical tool built from personal experience. A tool for people to discreetly take control when needed. Flare is not a solution. We are a stop-gap for today while real change is made. Our mission is simple: to put ourselves out of business and create a world where Flare is not needed. We are proud to support and work with amazing groups tackling this issue from multiple angles. Some of them are listed below. Safety isn't one-size-fits-all and we don't have “the answers.” We worked with thousands of people over 4 years to develop Flare and are committed to constant improvement, breaking down our own assumptions and privilege, and continuing to make our tools better until they're no longer needed." (Taken from getFlare.com)
    Quinn Fitzgerald: "Quinn Fitzgerald is an entrepreneur, advocate, venture-backed business founder, and public servant. As the co-founder of Flare, she is reinventing personal safety with community-driven technology solutions based on real experiences.  Flare’s technology is hidden in jewelry and their software platform is powered by an extensive data engine that provides customizable safety features for users to select between. Quinn started Flare because of personal experience with assault and because her experience is unfortunately not unique.  Her passion for innovation and breaking down stereotypes around safety started in college, where she was the first person to design her own major in Conflict Resolution at the College of the Holy Cross. Quinn attended Harvard Business School and previously served as the Assistant Director of the White House Business Council in the Obama White House." ( From Fast Company)
