Project Speak Out Manager at New York Asian Women’s Center – the largest Asian-American Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking agency in the US – with a 24-hr domestic violence Hotline in a dozen Asian languages and dialects. http://www.nyawc.org/about/what-we-do.html
Project Speak Out is a new initiative in which New York Asian Women’s Center, in partnership with three other Asian-American Domestic Violence agencies in New York City, will work to change community attitudes towards domestic violence. We want to stop the violence BEFORE it starts.
I feel like I have been preparing for this position most of my life, volunteering with domestic violence and sexual-assault victims within the immigrant community and beyond since I was a child.
If you know anyone who needs our support programs or shelter services, or would like to volunteer, please let me know. For my position, I need to recruit at least 50 volunteers who will go into the Asian community within Elmhurst, Queens, and try to engage community members to educate, treat and prevent Domestic violence and other forms of intimate partner violence. We also need volunteers for the 24-hour hotline, and to accompany our clients to different appointments.
