Sisterhood for Wellness Project: In collaboration with Oakland-based nonprofit, Community Health for Asian Americans (CHAA) (www.chaaweb.org), ACHA began this project to increase access to and the quality of mental health and community wellbeing for immigrant and refugee Asian women in the Bay Area. Traditionally, women’s leadership in many Asian communities is undermined in public arena and yet women are often the vanguards of the health and well-being of their families. Under this project, workshops on civic engagement, parent-teacher communication, breast cancer awareness, domestic violence, employment training, resume writing, and scholarships and student loans were organized for community members in the East Bay. We are delighted and grateful to CHAA for their partnership and Berkeley Mental Health Division for supporting the collaboration for the second year.
