Pinoy Pod 28

Overcoming domestic violence in the Filipino community

Cherie Querol Moreno is known to many Filipinos in the San Francisco Bay Area for her work as a journalist and community advocate. Four years ago, she took on a new challenge: focusing attention on the problem of spousal abuse in the community.

She is currently the coordinator of Kumares/Kumpares, which is part of the Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse, or CORA, in San Mateo County. In December, Kumares/Kumpares will receive a Philippine Presidential Outstanding Overseas Filipinos Award in Manila.

In this interview with Pinoy Pod, she talks about the cultural and social issues involved in the battle against domestic violence in the Filipino community.
