On July 15th, more than 50 youth from Long Beach and Orange County came together for CPAF’s 2nd Annual “Violence Free Begins With Me” Asian and Pacific Islander Youth Forum. Young women and men explored their own identities and shared their community’s experiences with historical trauma. They learned about “toxic masculinity” and its connection to sexual violence. Finally, they honored their ancestors’ resilience and made commitments to continue building a world free from violence.
