Stride Against Violence 5K Run/Walk in Chicago - Help Us End Violence Against Women

Event Date: 
October 2, 2011 - 08:00 - 12:00

On Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 Apna Ghar, Inc. (Our Home) will host its 5th annual Stride Against Violence 5K Fun Run/Walk in Lincoln Park, Chicago to raise awareness about domestic violence and support for Apna Ghar’s groundbreaking programs and services for domestic violence survivors from marginalized, immigrant communities.

For more information about Stride Against Violence or to register for the event please visit or contact Kalpana Simhan at, 773-334-0173 ex. 244.


For over 20 years, Apna Ghar (Our Home) has been a safe haven for immigrant women in Chicago who face domestic violence, but don’t have the support networks or access to services needed to break free from violence. Our emergency shelter, counseling, legal advocacy, and other wraparound services empower women to not only achieve immediate safety and but to also build independent, secure lives for themselves and their children in the long-run. Our services are all provided within a culturally competent and multilingual framework, which addresses the needs of the diverse communities in Chicago.
