APEX & PbP Mixer: Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Awareness
➤ PURCHASE TICKETS:
Two-thirds of the 1.5 million Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) living in L.A. County are immigrants. One out of two API immigrant women have been physically, sexually, and/or emotionally abused. They are the least likely to report the abuse and face multiple barriers that deter them from accessing services available to help them.
Center for the Pacific Asian Family's (CPAF's) mission is to build healthy and safe communities by addressing the root causes and the consequences of family violence and violence against women. The agency specializes in serving low-income API survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and is committed to meeting the specific cultural and language needs of API women and their families. CPAF operates a multilingual 24-hour crisis hotline, provides intervention services, and has available housing for emergency and transitional phases.
In 2018, CPAF celebrates 40 years of engaging the community to end domestic and sexual violence through culturally-grounded crisis intervention and violence prevention. APEX | Asian Professional Exchange and Project by Project Los Angeles are excited to host a community "friendraiser" mixer benefitting CPAF. In light of the prevalence of sexual assault and domestic violence issues in the dialogue started by the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, all ticket proceeds will benefit CPAF to foster increased awareness within the API community.
