Testing new page.

The National Latin@ Network will continue to add resources here that are culturally relevant for Latin@ communities. Right now, we have compiled these resources on sexual assault. 

 

Sexual assault can represent one of the most serious forms of violence against women with 1 in 4 women experiencing sexual violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Sexual violence can impact all people regardless of age, ethnicity, race or economic status and often presents a higher risk for immigrant populations who often experience barriers accessing medical, legal and social services. With sexual assault representing the crime least reported to law enforcement (28%) countless victims continue to privately suffer with the physical and emotional burden it produces.

The National Latin@ Network has compiled a number of resources to help:

VAWnet—a vast resource library for the field of domestic violence and sexual assault, from material on community engagement to research and toolkits. 

Te Invito Toolkit to Engage Latino Men and Boys


This toolkit is a collection of resrouces and materials for individuals and organizations to increase awareness and engfage Latino men and boys in preventing domestic violence.  You can access fact sheets, PSAs that can be customized at no cost, and other material that your organization can use for its advocacy and education purposes. 


Arte Sana Canasta de Herramientas







To better support the work of outreach to the communities who speak and read Spanish, Arte Sana offers a variety of products at no cost to the counselors who work directly with survivors of sexual violence and violence between couples. Resources include brochures, data sheets, flyers and presentations.

 

Arte Sana La Victima y la Sobreviviente

This new toolkit was created for bilingual victim advocates, to promote healthy Latin@ communities, enhance sexual violence prevention efforts, and build awareness about victim rights. The material is organized into ready-to-use formats including five PowerPoint presentations with accompanying handouts and presenter documents.

Arte Sana Infographic in Spanish, Una historia de acecho

This infographic was created by Arte Sana in collaboration with members of the Alianza Latina en contra la Agresión Sexual (ALAS) the national Latina alliance against sexual violence founded in 2004. The primary target audiences include potential stalkers and stalking victims who are monolingual Spanish speakers, LEP or ELL.

Existe Ayuda Fact Sheet

Fact sheet distributed by the Office for Victims of Crimes containing useful information for advocates including challenges identified by victim service agencies and recommendations for eliminating barriers preventing effective service.

¡Hasta Aqui No Mas!
¡Hasta Aqui No Mas! is a multimedia educational campaign that aims to engage Latin@s in a dialogue about sexual violence. Two public service announcements (PSAs) videos were created to promote the initiative, which feature Latin-American men and women confronting sexual violence. The PSAs promote attitudes and behaviors that empower men and boys to play an active role in ending sexual violence and to support messages of consent, equity and accountability. (You can read more about the project here.)
