This guide, written by the Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP), provides an overview of the diversity in the Pacific Islands and aims to orient the reader on the geographical, historical, ethno-linguistic, and cultural diversity of the Pacific Islander Community.
This project aimed to translate and develop educational resources and tools on GBV in indigenous Pasifika languages. The project aims to empower individuals, families, community-based and system responders, allied professionals, and the community-at-large with culturally responsive resources to address and prevent GBV in Pasifika communities. Resources include project report and glossaries and tools for Samoan, Chuukese, and Native Hawaiian communities.
Do you know what signs to look for and what steps to take if a teen or young adult encounters sexual or other harassment in the workplace? At the EEOC, we have seen that young workers at their first jobs can be especially vulnerable to harassment whether due to sex, national origin and other characteristics. Make a difference in the lives of the Asian and Pacific Islander teens and young adults you serve by learning how to recognize and refer cases, and understanding the role you can play to address workplace sexual harassment.

We need policies that ensure that all workers, whether they are employees or contractors, have access to safety and justice in the workplace.
