I'll never forget watching my friend's mother suffer through domestic violence. One night the abuse happened in front of other adults. No one called the police. No one helped her mother. They looked the other way and even ostracized her. Part of the reason for their response was generational, but a bigger part of it was cultural. Asian families don't talk about family business. I was 5-years-old when that happened and it's still vivid in my mind. I wish there were an organization like My Sister’s House that would have given my friend and her mother support, confidence and unconditional love. This is part of the reason I choose to get involved, give back to the community and support MSH. I wholeheartedly believe in the cause. Please join me, my colleagues, family and friends as we take part in the 10th Annual Run for a Safe Haven for My Sister’s House. Together we can support important work for women and children in our community who are in need because of family violence and human trafficking. You can come by yourself, start your own team or I'd love for you to join my team.
