“The peer-driven component and ethic of your work is impressive because it emphasizes empowerment...This call to health action in the community of Asian women and men performs a community service by illustrating that the vulnerability many people wish not to display publicly becomes a source of strength and healing.”
--Deborah Delman, The Transformation Center
