Next call: December 15, 2021 (9am HST / 12pm PST / 3pm CST / 3pm EST) (1hr)

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: Reflections on working through the pandemic

In December’s Bridges Connect Call we will reflect back on the past nearly two years of working through a global pandemic. In what ways have your organizations adapted services or advocacy to a socially distant world, and what are ways DV/SA organizations have added COVID-19 services to their repertoire? In your work or personal lives, what are some practices that you have taken up that you plan to carry forward beyond the pandemic? And what are your hopes for this field or this work in 2022?

December’s Bridges Call will be a shorter session, at one hour, and we will make use of breakout rooms. ASL interpretation and live captioning provided.

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. These calls will not be recorded, but we may share takeaways, without identifying information, with our staff or community. ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided. Please get in contact with us, or indicate in your RSVP, if you require additional interpretation or accessibility features.
