In sympathy of this sad news, we are aware of the domestic violence that has been revolving within the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. More actions need to be taken to protect our communities and to empower women. Asian Pacific Islander women face different barriers to accessing domestic violence resources including language barriers, fear, community pressure, legal obstacles, and lack of self sufficiency. We must also be cautious of the children who might witness those tragedies at home.
