The Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence is a national resource center on domestic violence, sexual violence, trafficking, and other forms of gender violence in Asian and Pacific Islander communities. It serves a national network of advocates, community-based organizations, national and state programs, legal, health, and mental health professionals, researchers, policymakers and activists from social justice organizations working to eliminate violence against women. It analyzes critical issues; provides consultation, technical assistance and training; conducts research; and engages in policy advocacy. Its vision of gender democracy drives its mission to strengthen culturally relevant advocacy, promote prevention and community engagement, influence public policy and systems change, and prevent gender violence through movement-building and community transformation.
