Who We Are

NAPIESV was created by a group of API anti-sexual assault advocates to center the experiences of survivors of sexual violence. It is a program under Monsoon Asians & Pacific Islanders in Solidarity that focuses on enhancing services to survivors of sexual violence in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities with practices and programs specific to their culture.


To support local and international community-based programs and governmental organizations in enhancing their services to victims of sexual violence from the Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the U.S., U.S. Territories in the Pacific, and Asia.


A future where all Asian and Pacific Islander communities thrive, free from sexual violence. We envision a world where every individual within API communities lives in safety, dignity, and equality. Through relentless advocacy, education, and support, we strive to build a society that embraces diversity, uplifts survivors, and eradicates all forms of sexual violence. Together, we envision a brighter future where API communities flourish, united in their collective resilience and unwavering commitment to restorative justice and healing.
