Domestic violence is a tragedy that affects all segments of the U.S. population. The original show was cancelled last year in October and was censored by 1199 SEIU. As a militant women’s organization we did not remain silent! Our political objective is to educate our community that there are different forms of violence that women all over the world are facing. Through the IVOW to Fight Violence Against Women campaign and F.i.R.E help to educate our communities and encourage them to take action! Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment-Gabriela USA and community allied organizations, Nodutdol for Korean Community Development and Malcom X Grassroots Organization bring to you “Unpacking Violence” gallery exhibit. FiRE’s Unpacking Violence gallery exhibit was inspired by GABRIELA-USA’s comprehensive national educational campaign VOW (Voices of Women) versus VAW (Violence Against Women). The art show aims to expand the definition, awareness, and discourse of violence against women (VAW) in order to break the culture of silence around this issue and to combat its occurrence.
