The A-Z Advocacy Model for Asian & Pacific Islander Survivors elevates the complexity and impact of culturally-specific programs designed by Asian and Pacific Islander advocates. The model is defined by the nexus of an extraordinary inventory of evidence-informed practices in response to existing and new trends in gender-based violence and inter-and intra-API cultural and linguistic diversity. It is anchored in principles that analyze gendered and racialized cultural contexts, confront root causes, engage in systems change and cultural transformation; all the while, holding women’s equality and empowerment central to community well-being. The A-Z Inventory of Practice and qualitative and quantitative data show how culturally-specific advocacy is operationalized.
