Mourning the Events in Atlanta

March 20, 2021

As an organization that serves women in the Philippines who have suffered gender-based violence, human trafficking, and other forms of violent exploitation, we have grieved the events in Atlanta along with the rest of the US and the international community.

In our work each day, we bear witness to the long-lasting impact that violence and trauma have on women and the systems and structures that perpetuate abuse.

We mourn with those who have lost life and we condemn these acts. Together, we stand with those who fear increasing violence toward Asian Americans and continue to work to create a world where all women, all people, experience safety, freedom, hope, and dignity.
