Monsoon provides technical assistance and training through the National Organization of Asian Pacific Islanders Ending Sexual Violence (“NAPIESV”) National Resource Center on Sexual Violence, a program under Monsoon, to improve services to victims/survivors of sexual violence from Asian and Pacific Islander (“API”) communities in the United States, U.S. territories in the Pacific, and Alaska.

NAPIESV was founded in 2011 by Emma Catague, Imelda Buncab, Sopheak Tek, Nina Jusuf, and Mira Yusef. The mission of NAPIESV is to end sexual violence in Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities and build healthy communities through transformative justice and social change. It addresses the intersections of sexual violence with gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, ability, and age and explores their connections to community accountability. The organization also examines the role of communities in perpetuating violence and explores notions of individual and community healing.
