NEW YORK: In its continuing focus on South Asian communities and its work toward combating violence against women, Manavi is hosting a free, two-day training for volunteers who wish to advocate for South Asian women who have experienced violence in their lives.

The two-day training coupled with a completed 40-hour DVRT or a 60-hour SART (which is NJ-required) will enable participants to work directly with women seeking to live a violence-free life, according to a press release issued by Manavi.

The Free Advocacy Training will take place on Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Manavi Office in New Brunswick, NJ.

Manavi is a community based organization committed to increasing social rights of women who trace their cultural roots to Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Manavi’s goal is to bring about social change to end all violence against women. Its approach is nonjudgmental, nonreligious, and nonsectarian.

The workshop is open to everyone. To register for this free training, call Harshika Jhaveri at (732) 435- 1414 or email her at Space is limited.
