About Kinke Kwojjab Make Iam:
Provides a safe and confidential refuge for the Marshallese speaking community in addressing sexual assault and harassment through support, understanding and resources.
Anemkwoj Jen Kakkure (AJK)
Anemkwoj Jen Kakkure (AJK) has been created to start the conversation about sexual assault and sexual harassment in the Marshallese community, where there is no such word for sexual assault, instead a description of the word is used. Speaking about sexual assault is taboo in the Marshallese culture making the perpetrator get away with it and victims/survivors being ashamed to even come forward about it, fearing many things. AJK is a family oriented event, mainly focusing on the Marshallese community through education and awareness; ensuring our organization's commitment to provide equal access of services to all members of our NWA community. Kinke Kwojjab Make Iam (KKMI) has brought this event annually to the Marshallese community as a method to liberate the negative stigma of rape culture.
