Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence

ATASK is a nonprofit, community organization serving pan-Asian survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence. We provide services in Greater Boston and Greater Lowell and offer limited assistance in other cities throughout Massachusetts and New England. We currently provide services in 18 Asian languages and dialects. Our mission is to prevent domestic and intimate partner violence in Asian families and communities and to provide hope to survivors. ATASK is committed to serving survivors of domestic violence representing all ages, ability levels, education levels, race, national origin, cultures, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations.

When we first connected with ATASK, they knew the importance of telling their stories. They hadn’t updated their online presence and the videos in a long time and knew that it was important. The problems they face sometimes mean that people in need may not receive help that they otherwise could if they were aware of the ATASK services and ability to speak their language and understand their cultures.


Our goal was to capture their stories in the most natural and authentic way possible. Their mission of helping individuals suffering from domestic abuse in the asian population is so powerful and we’re proud to partner with them. It aligns with our mission of telling meaningful stories that drive positive change, and the people who work there are so genuine that it made the process very smooth and extremely fulfilling. The result has been that they have heartfelt stories that emotionally resonate with their audience, and cover the perspectives of both survivors and their internal team in order to connect with partners and individuals needing support.
