Our ongoing community education campaigns seek to demystify and destigmatize all issues: only through healthy conversations can build healthy communities and families. SFC concluded a year-long Survivor-Centered Advocacy Project, in partnership with the Asian Pacific Islander Institute on Gender-Based Violence (API-GBV). Participants of focus groups and storytelling interviews included survivors of gender-based violence, as well as, community members who regularly work (formally or informally) with survivors of violence. The findings have been circulated by API-GBV nationally; presented to anti-violence organizations across California; and released as a report, in English and Punjabi, returning the knowledge collected back to our community.
