Arte Sana Launches Capacitadoras en Acción
(Trainers in Action)*
Capacitadoras en Acción (Trainers in Action) provides training to adult Latinas, promotoras, as well as other social service professionals, so that they may share information about sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and local victim service programs within Latino communities. The “Acción” or "Action" part of Capacitadoras en Acción (Trainers in Action) focuses on enabling real change by training those who will be able to make a difference.
This project addresses the personal safety needs of Spanish-speaking immigrant Latinas from some of the poorest communities along the Texas/Mexico border. The project’s aim is for Latino border communities to become active participants and partners in promoting safety and awareness on gender-based violence issues. This project primarily serves the Texas-Mexico border.
Arte Sana commits to customize the training agenda and the schedule in accordance with agency specifications in order to meet their needs, and thus reach the training objectives of the project by raising awareness of the identified topics in the various border regions.
