<p>October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!</p>
<p>Gender-based violence is a global epidemic and no one culture is more susceptible to violence. We also know that violence manifests uniquely in each culture and needs cultural specific responses.</p>
<p>Lauren Pires of the Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project will be coming to the Takoma Park campus to present: "Domestic Violence &amp; Sexual Assault in the Asian/Pacific Islander Community"</p>
<p>In this training, we'll talk about what domestic violence and sexual assault can look like in the Asian/Pacific Islander community and how to build culturally-specific resources for survivors. We will go over definitions of domestic violence and sexual assault, talk through resources and next steps, and empower individuals to recognize violence.</p>
<p>Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from 1 p.m.-2 p.m.</p>
<p>Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus ST 301</p>
