Joon Choi receives grant from the Office on Violence Against Women
Joon Choi, an associate professor at the School of Social Work, was recently awarded a two-year, $477,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women to address domestic violence in the Asian immigrant community. Known as Korean Americans for Healthy Families, the program will seek to change norms around domestic violence in that community, striving to both prevent domestic violence and expand access to needed resources and services for immigrant survivors of domestic violence.
This community-level intervention effort features two components — a virtual simulation training along with in-person workshops to better equip faith leaders who assist Asian survivors of domestic violence, as well as a communications campaign focused on strengthening community attitudes that both condemn domestic violence and facilitate access for survivors to necessary services.
KAHF is a multidisciplinary project, featuring Pamela Orpinas from the College of Public Health and Jeong-Yeob Han from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication as Co-Investigators.
