October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) and Saahas for Cause, will be commemorating the month with “Spotlight on Domestic Violence”, an initiative to spread awareness and educate our South Asian community on what Domestic Violence is and the need to support survivors. This event will be held on zoom, on October 22nd, 2021, at 11:30 a.m.
We hope to reduce the stigma surrounding such topics in our community through:
- Street plays that reflect the scenarios present in South Asian society and conduct an open discussion with the community members.
- Pop culture references depict the misogyny that promotes violence in our communities.
- Message from Pallavi Dhawan, Director of Domestic Violence Policy, Family Violence Operations, Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
Saahas for Cause has been approved as an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.
We are thrilled to be able to bestow Presidential recognition to our volunteers and consider it to be a tremendous honor for our organization. For more information on the program or to volunteer with us, reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
