The number of victim assistance websites added in 2012 to the Existe Ayuda National Online Directory of Services in Spanish.
Arte Sana created this page in 2003 as a means to offer LEP/ELL victims a user-friendly list of centers that offer specific sexual assault victim services in Spanish.
This is a non-funded collective endeavor aimed at reducing re-victimization, so agencies are encouraged to review the programs listed for their state and sign on with whatever particular services they offer in Spanish.

Nuestras Voces/Our Voices National
Bilingual Sexual Assault Conference
Presenter Showcase: Sonia Parras Konrad
Sonia Parras Konrad is Co-Executive Director of ASISTA Immigrant Assistance for immigrant survivors, a nationwide program that provides immigration technical assistance to front line advocates and attorneys, and she is also in private practice at the Law Offices of Sonia Parras PLLC. Sonia is an activist, attorney, and educator on domestic violence issues and legal remedies for immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Through her work Sonia strives to promote the organization and leadership of immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Sonia is the author of Rompiendo el Silencio (Breaking the Silence), a manual for Latino community activists organizing against domestic violence and sexual assault, published by the Family Violence Prevention Fund, and Defensa y Promoción de la Mujer Latina (Defense and Promotion of the Latina Woman) published by National Latino Alliance.
Sonia will present "From the cradle to the grave; responding to the continuum of violence against Latin@s" to illustrate how the experiences of Latina immigrant women are often impacted by the continuum of violence that is deeply rooted in structural relationships of inequality between women and men. Through the experiences of two survivors, Sonia will unravel the key for Latina immigrant survivors to start the healing path, the role that each of us plays in this important mission.

|Support Local Promotoras/community health worker training scholarships!
Since its very first national conference Arte Sana has always supported the professional development of coalition and direct service victim advocates and promotoras through full and partial scholarships. However, the current economy means less available funds for professional training, and this has led to even more requests for scholarships.
Your support can assure the attendance of advocates and promotoras/community health workers in Iowa and nearby regions. Make a donation and share your message to fill the Corazón de las Mariposas (butterfly heart)!
Gracias to all of our partners in 2012!
We look forward to many exciting collaborations in 2013!
