The Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (API-GBV) is taking steps to replenish the collective spirit of domestic violence advocates fatigued by feelings of loss.  

As one of three of the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) Program’s Culturally Specific Special Issue Resource Centers, API-GBV is dedicating time and American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding to invest in advocates through a four-part healing series during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI Heritage Month).  

The move comes against a backdrop of an enduring pandemic and an unprecedented spike in hate crimes targeting Asian-Americans , among other present-day issues. The organization hosted listening sessions with advocates across the country, picking up on a recurring theme.
