Our video series continues! Amrita Hanjhra, SFC Advisory Board Member, presents “Five Ways to Check-In with Kids Impacted by FamilyViolence.” Amrita, a gender-based violence expert, focuses on how to better interact with children who have been exposed to family violence. We often think children don’t know or aren’t affected. In fact, science shows how keenly children observe and absorb adult interactions surrounding them.
Mallika Kaur, SFC Board Chair, joined a panel discussion for Sikh Coalition’s Summer Series: Understanding Domestic Violence In Our Communities. Mallika explained, “one thing that Sikh Family Center is struck by, and that’s what keeps us going is: You will find allies in the most unusual places… We have found people of all ages in our community that support survivors in the community.” Watch the full discussion on YouTube.
To raise awareness about family violence during the COVID-19 pandemic, Harmit Kaur, SFC Director of Community Engagement, joined the County of Santa Clara’s Behavioral Health Services Department’s special virtual Punjabi Town Hall as a guest speaker. The panel discussion addressed culturally-specific issues related to COVID-19 including family health, emotional wellness and resources for individuals and families.
