Training and Community Outreach

DVRP was founded to ensure that abused Asian/Pacific Islander (A/PI) survivors reaching out for assistance would have access to culturally and linguistically appropriate services. To accomplish this objective, we:

  • Train A/PI community leaders to recognize signs of domestic violence and provide appropriate tools to respond effectively to the needs of survivors in their community
  • Provide cultural humility trainings to domestic violence program staff to build skills in cultural humility
  • Offer technical assistance and consultation on working with immigrant survivors or A/PI survivors

Advocates Training

This extensive workshop is a comprehensive insight into the majority of our smaller workshops, including bystander intervention, cultural humility, domestic violence, sexual assault, and healthy relationships. Come learn the role of an advocate, how to advocate for people of different identities, and how to consider oppression, prejudice, and privilege when advocating.

Intersectionality and Understanding Systems of Violence

In this training we approach understanding gender based violence through a systems lens that tackles the ways in which systems are built to be inherently violent and how this violence then may become internalized and normalized within our cultures and relationships. We share through the lens of  intersectionality and white supremacy culture, and offers ways we can work to interrupt these cycles of violence.

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault: Building a Culture of Consent

One of the building blocks of DVRP; in this workshop, 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 discuss consent as a critical framework to building survivor-centered and trauma-informed work.

Cultural Humility & Survivor-Centered Work

We believe in “cultural humility” over “cultural competency”. In this workshop we explore the ways systems of power and privilege complicate consent and ways we can disrupt that imbalance of power. In this training we’ll build a common understanding of culture, oppression, privilege, stereotyping, and its effect on the work we do and how we can move forward.

Healthy Relationships

What differentiates a healthy relationship from an unhealthy one? Let’s explore healthy relationship through centering consent, boundaries, and how we navigate conflict.
