April is the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  We hope to honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month by breaking the silence around sexual assault/abuse through music and art, as well as raise money for API Chaya.  This event will feature local Seattle reggae band Kore Ionz, as well as performances by local dancers, spoken word artists, and musicians.  All proceeds will be donated to API Chaya.

Kore Ionz
Seattle reggae rockers Kore Ionz have shared the stage with such legends as The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Toots & The Maytals, and Third World, as well as contemporary artists like Katchafire, J Boog, and The Green. Teaming up with producer Mell Dettmer (Femi Kuti, Bassekou Kouyate, Clinton Fearon), the band spent most of 2010 in the studio, releasing their second full-length album World War Free on August 20, 2011, nearly selling out legendary Seattle venue The Crocodile.

"The intention of the music and the message," explains Hawai'i-born singer/songwriter Daniel Pak in an interview with the Honolulu Weekly, "to give people a glimpse of the truth in a way such that it just might uplift them to go do something to change it."

19th Annual Candlelight Vigil

API Chaya's 19th Annual Candlelight Vigil: KAPWA
March 6th 2013, 3 - 8 PM
FREE and open to the public
King County Courthouse

Susanna Blackwell, Phoebe Dizon, and Veronica Laureta were shot and killed at the King County Courthouse in 1995 during Susanna Blackwell's divorce proceeding by Timothy Blackwell, Susanna's estranged husband. This tragedy organized the API community as a group of women (known as our founding mothers) came together to form the Asian Pacific Islander Women and Family Safety Center (currently known as API Chaya). While the tragedy and loss of Susanna Blackwell, Phoebe Dizon, and Veronica Laureta occurred 18 years ago, we continue to see the prevalence of domestic and sexual violence in our communities. This year we also would like to honor our sister in India, Damini, who was brutally gang raped and did not survive the injuries from the assault.

Join us to explore the power of art and media in breaking the silence at this year's candlelight vigil. Together we will continue the conversation about how to better support survivors and end domestic and sexual violence and abuse.

Community Forum: Delhi Amanat, Seattle Response

As part of the first South Asian International Documentary Festival, API Chaya presents...

A Screening of 'After the Rape: The Mukhtar Mai Story' and film shorts on Delhi Rising, followed by a moderated discussion. As a community, we will reflect on the recent gang-rape and death of Damini/Nirbhaya/Amanat, a Delhi woman, and the ensuing protests, dubbed Delhi Rising. We will discuss how these recent events help raise awareness around violence against women, and particularly sexual violence, and whether this is enough to bring about change in South Asia as well as in our communities here. This forum is sponsored and will be moderated by API-Chaya.

Sunday February 24, 1:00 - 3:00 PM, Seattle Center See for details For more information about API Chaya, please visit Free Admission, suggested donation $5-25. no one turned away for lack of funds.
