About Us

The Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence is a culturally specific 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.
