API-GBV will be joining the Partnership in a two-part series to discuss various topics listed below! What does it mean to be API? What does this look like? What does gender-based violence look like within the API community? How can organizations provide services to individuals who identify as API? What does language access look like? What are generational difference traumas that must be taken into account? Join us to learn more!
