We acknowledge we are on the ancestral land of the Salish People of Washington State. We recognize past and present trauma and racism has led to Indigenous and Native peoples suffering some of the highest rates of violence including domestic violence.
We create free resources for survivors and allies, including our survivor toolkits. Topics range from emotional abuse, LGBTQIA+ youth/youth of color, and Asian American survivors. We also run a podcast covering a range of topics including survivor stories and testimony. We also create and distribute menstruation and sanitation packs for survivors who menstruate.
We host free cultural events annually, including our United Festival for Asian American & Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we host "Horror at Home", featuring cultural stories from around the world to highlight the normalization of domestic violence and violence against women of color.
Our events are designed to connect with our community. We focus on conveying our message through artistic means, to create space for people to engage with this difficult topic. We also focus heavily on empowering, financially supporting, and uplifting local artists, performers, and activists of color.
We strive every day to create safe spaces for everyone and anyone. We create these spaces through our events, attending and staffing local festivals, and through our social media groups and upcoming discord and survivor book club.
Please consider supporting us so we can continue to help our communities and survivors of domestic violence.
