To Kevin Berrill, the pioneering activist who, as a staff member of NGLTF from 1980 to 1990,
brought the serious issue of anti LGBT violence to the attention of our community and of the
country at large.  It was through Kevin's pathfinding work that he began to interact with student,
faculty and staff organizers and activists, who sought his assistance in dealing with harassment and
violence on college and university campuses.  Thus was born NGLTF's Campus Project.
Although he has moved on to other pursuits, Kevin's influence can be detected on every page of
this manual.  We are grateful for his inspiration, wisdom and friendship.
And to the brave lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender campus activists who are trans
