Bridges turns ONE this October!
Next call: October 26, 2021 (9am HST / 12pm PST / 3pm CST / 3pm EST)

These bi-monthly community connect calls are intended to be a space for AANHPI advocates, community members, and allies to connect, dialogue, share successes, problem solve, and network. API-GBV staff will be available to moderate and encourage discussion, but this is a space for YOU, as the experts of this work, to share your experiences and to learn from allies across the country.

October’s theme: Raising awareness during DVAM and beyone

This Domestic Violence Awareness Month we celebrate 1 year of Bridges! Since October 2020, our bi-monthly Bridges calls have gathered allies from all across our movement in dialogue and discussion around AANHPI identities, experiences, and needs. Join the conversation this October 26th, 2021 in celebration of our Bridges anniversary and in recognition of DVAM. 
On this call, we will discuss strategies for breaking the silence around domestic violence and broadening outreach to AANHPI communities during DVAM. We want to hear about and be inspired by the events, virtual and in person, your organization is hosting this October to engage communities in starting conversations around healthy relationships and relationship abuse. We also want to learn about ways to carry this conversation beyond DVAM, because domestic violence awareness should be year-round. 

Other details:

Meetings will be hosted on Zoom, and you are encouraged to join with video and voice to the extent that you are comfortable.
