PERSIST: 30 Years of Asian Women's Shelter


AWS has been improving lives, communities and policies for 30 years! Asian Women's Shelter (AWS) presents a night of celebration, hope and community to support safety, empowerment and renewal for marginalized survivors of violence.

Since 1988, AWS has supported thousands of survivors ranging from infants to elders, both in shelter and in neighborhoods and communities. Together with our supporters, we have built life-saving and life changing connections.

Now more than ever, your support helps families facing decreasing rights and resources, and builds a strong foundation for the next 30 years of AWS. Please join us on September 15th! Early-bird ticket prices are available until August 15th.
