In 2014 and 2015, SAAPRI and the Center for Disease Control’s National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) conducted a research study to prevent workplace violence against South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Nepali, or Bhutanese) retail workers in Chicago, who are at a higher risk of facing violence on the job, often in the course of a robbery. The research findings were used to develop materials that would help prevent violence in the future and strengthen coalitions with diverse communities of color. SAAPRI also collaborated with Apna Ghar, Inc. to develop tools to assist community members who have suffered violence while working at a retail store.
