05 Nov Webinar: A-Z Advocacy Model: How Asian/Pacific Islander Programs Operationalize Culturally-Specific Services
From 3:30 PM until 5:00 PM
How do STOP subgrantees meaningfully implement culturally-specific services in order to serve the rich ethnic and linguistic diversity of Asians and Pacific Islanders?
The A-Z Advocacy Model for Asian and Pacific Islander Survivors identifies the integration of program design principles and evidence-informed practices that address some of the unique abuser, family, community, and systems generated risks that API survivors face.
This webinar, for STOP grant administrators, will:
- address how the A-Z Advocacy Model can inform the development of STOP implementation plans;
- engage with API-serving community-based-organizations; and
- build capacity for systemic changes to serve historically marginalized communities.
