NPO: Out Against Abuse

Thursday, February 14, 2008

I got sent an e-mail from the founder of a new non-profit that's starting up to help with domestic abuse in the South Asian community called Out Against Abuse. They're just getting started, so go on over and check out their site and see if you can't help out with this worthy cause. Here's some more info that Sabrin Chowdhury sent over about the NPO:

The main purpose of this forum is to bring together activists, volunteers, survivors, and members of the community to encourage the discussion of gender related abuse and how it affects the South Asian community. We hope through constant dialogue and collaboration we can all learn from each other and work to educate our community on how to end gender related violence in our homes and lives.

The features of the website/blog will include a biweekly interview spotlighting an activist, allowing readers to learn more about their research and impact on advancing women’s rights. The blog will also be updated frequently with recent news and insightful articles.

I encourage you to visit the website ( and offer any suggestions, make comments on the blogs, start the discussion, and pass it on to your volunteers and survivors, activists, scholars, and the rest of your community.
Pass it on if you can.
