Date: Thursday, April 27, 2017

Time: 12:00 - 1:30pm (Central)

While sexual violence impacts every demographic group, myths about sexual violence within Latin@/x communities create misconceptions around culture and race. By engaging parents, religious leaders, survivors and community members, we can promote awareness, culturally-specific outreach and community engagement toward demystifying sexual violence within Latin@/x communities.

Objectives:

  • Build upon personal strengths with cultural identity to work with community leaders to build bridges with community.
  • Identify three leaders and others that we don’t normally see as leaders.
  • Identify and train organizations on the changing needs of Latin@/x communities

Presenter: Maria Jirau-Torres, National Sexual Violence Resource Center
