Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence

The Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence is a national resource center on domestic violence, sexual violence, trafficking, and other forms of gender-based violence in Asian/Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. We envision a world free of gender-based violence for communities with equal opportunities for all to thrive. Our mission is to disrupt gender-based violence, which causes physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual and economic harm within AAPI communities throughout the U.S. and its territories. We work together with and within our community to: Uplift the voices and experiences of the AAPI communities who are impacted by violence; Build capacity through training and technical support for those organizations who serve our communities; Engage allied communities and systems to create shifts in gendered cultural norms and address injustices; Educate our communities to mobilize them to prevent gender-based violence; and Advocate for policies and practices that ensure access to essential rights and services
