Based in Washington, D.C., the Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1995 in response to the lack of linguistically and culturally appropriate services for Asian/Pacific Islander (A/PI) battered women in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 1996, DVRP's mission is to address and prevent domestic violence in A/PI communities in the DC area. DVRP is a non-hierarchical organization structured on mutual respect, shared responsibility, trust and equality supported by a collaborative style of leadership.
