Did you know that up to 60% of API women experience intimate partner abuse or sexual abuse in their lifetime and are least likely to report it? That is an extraordinarily high percentage given that the national average is 33%.
Now, Asian American stars Sandra Oh, John Cho, Aaron Yoo, Lisa Ling, Leonardo Nam, Archie Kao, C.S. Lee, Joan Chen, Justin Chon, Far East Movement, Kaba Modern and more than 100 other members of the creative community will appear in a series of videos supporting the Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF), which provides a multi-lingual 24-hour call center, emergency shelter, transitional housing program, counseling services and various community outreach programs to address domestic violence. Hundreds of others contributed their time, experience and resources to produce the videos and help raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault.
All this to help CPAF win some badly needed funding through the Chase Community Giving contest from January 15 to 22 on Facebook. It doesn’t cost you anything to help, but your vote could get up to $1 million to fight domestic violence in the Asian American community. All we need is 10 seconds for you to vote on Facebook HERE:
But hurry! The contest ends tomorrow January 22! All it takes is 10 seconds to help support the Center for the Pacific Asian Family. Ten seconds to Silence the Violence.
