center for pacific asian family: april is sexual assault awareness month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. If you're in the Los Angeles area, the Center for Pacific Asian Family has two events planned for the month: a verbal and physical self-defense workshop at USC and a Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence/Language Bank training for folks who are interested in volunteering with us as interpreters. The self-defense workshop is open to anyone who is interested. (Please excuse the karate lady in the flyer above.) Here are some more details:
