THE STORY:

"Nabugbog na naman siya" is Tagalog or Filipino meaning "she was beaten again." I remember my aunt and other Filipinas whispering to each other as their friend and her husband argued in the car before heading in to join the party.  This was many years ago, well before I embarked on a now 20 year career advocating for immigrant victims of domestic violence in San Diego County.   Back then, I was just a young woman at another family gathering -- a gathering that suddenly changed my perspective forever.   This was not only the first time I saw a woman with a black eye, but also the first time I realized that all the blame was placed upon her for being hit, again.


In order to end domestic violence in all its forms, we need to educate the women in our communities and young men and women about healthy vs. unhealthy relationships.   


Access, Inc. the non profit in San Diego County which gave me the opportunity to do just that with the VAWA Legal Program in 1997 has allowed our small but committed staff to continue to expand our partnerships to provide legal services, economic empowerment and leadership classes to vulnerable immigrant and refugee communities in San Diego County to stop the cycle of violence and help teach the next generation that there is no excuse for domestic violence. 


We  ask for your support in this effort to continue to represent and empower victims to not only help them survive and thrive after the abuse, but also to prevent domestic violence in our communities.    


From October 2, 2017 to October 31, 2017, we aim to raise $5000 during the online Crowdrise Purple Purse Challenge to help us continue our work on behalf of victims and survivors in San Diego County.
