Our dinner/fundraiser is our most important annual event and brings together a diverse array of members from various South Asian communities. It is a time of celebration and reflection and importantly, it is a space for survivors to speak out against the violence they have faced and receive community support.

About Manavi - founded in 1985, Manavi was the first South Asian women's organization in the United States and has been at the forefront of the anti-violence against South Asian women movement in the US for twenty years. We receive nearly 300 calls each year from women who are survivors of, or currently facing, some form of violence. Our services are confidential and free.
