This report explores and contextualizes the results from API-GBV’s 2023 needs assessment on AANHPI-serving GBV community organizations. The findings support a sustained need for culturally responsive programming and research; specialized training opportunities for volunteers and staff; technical assistance to strengthen organizational capacity; and policy advocacy to address the systemic, root causes of gender-based violence while promoting healthier families and relationships.

This summary provides key findings from API-GBV’s 2023 Needs Assessment as a snapshot of the full report, which will provide more in-depth analysis and discussion on the needs of AANHPI-serving GBV community organizations. Major findings from this summary include a look at which communities require additional support, concerns that intersect with GBV for AANHPI survivors, current challenges for staff and providers, and areas of cultural strengths and needs among AANHPI-serving GBV organizations.
