We Are Agents of Change!
Reflecting on Our 2018 National Summit
Dear Friends,

Thank you for lending your energy, experience, and expertise to our National Summit held August 5-7 in Los Angeles. We were honored to host a gathering of over 225 advocates, activists, and allies, representing nearly 100 organizations (including over 79 culturally-specific API agencies), from over 30 states and territories. Plenary and workshop topics included historical trauma affecting Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, culturally-specific services for Muslim survivors, safety planning for immigrant victims, trafficking, social messaging for impact, organizational sustainability, housing and economic security, community-based research, LGBTQ intimate partner homicide risk factors, sexual violence, and building a movement against abusive international marriages.

We were energized by the tremendous work advocates are doing to provide support for survivors of violence, and we are looking forward to collaborating with you on forthcoming projects! Don't hesitate to contact us at info@api-gbv.org for consultation, thought partnership, and training.
