There is no movement without rhythm. It creates structure and enables action for positive social transformation. Each of us can play an instrumental role as we strengthen voices and harmonize the movement against domestic violence. Come see the local artists reinvigorate our commitment and raise awareness through powerful sound and artful performance.
*API Chaya is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to serving survivors in crisis and raising awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Our services are free, confidential, and available to any person in need.
API Chaya was formed from the merger of two organizations in 2011: the Asian & Pacific Islander Women & Family Safety Center and Chaya. The Safety Center grew out of organizing within the Filipino community in 1993 sponsored by the Washington State Commission on Asian American Affairs out of concern for the prevalence of violence against women in their community, including several murders of Asian Pacific women. The Safety Center hired staff in 1997 to work with community groups to organize for justice and social change. Chaya was established in 1996 to serve South Asian women in times of crisis and need and to raise awareness of domestic violence issues.
