About Us

The API DV Task Force was formed by a group of domestic violence program social service agencies and community members in November 2004. Our mission is to eliminate domestic violence in Asian and Pacific Islander communities by providing outreach, education, and advocacy. The members include but are not limited to shelters, legal services, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, family services, advocates, and community members at large.


Together the API DV Task Force in conjunction with local and federal agencies recommit to eliminating domestic violence and reaching out to victims of domestic violence. This is a preventable social problem that requires collective action and for communities to unite to help end this devastating issue. With dedication and vigilance, we can increase safety and hope for thousands of our citizens.
