Between Friends: Conversations with Maitri

Maitri's prevention and awareness initiative, where we will talk to field experts and community members (both adults and youth) on various topics related to domestic/intimate partner violence, and how social norms and power dynamics foster gender inequity and abuse in relationships. We hope to share insights and resources that will help move the needle on the prevention of violence in our society, while also helping those that are directly impacted by it. Help us create a safe society! Music: [Cosmic Revelation, Jascha Dachter Arian]
