About our facilitator:

Since 1996, the Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP) has provided services to survivors of domestic violence in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.  Our mission is to address, prevent and end domestic violence and sexual assault in Asian/Pacific Islander communities while empowering survivors to rebuild their lives after abuse. From its founding to today, DVRP’s programs and structure are survivor-created and survivor-driven. DVRP has served over 1,300 survivors in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia, empowered community leaders to speak out against violence, and provided trainings to various audiences on cultural humility and domestic violence awareness.
