Existe Ayuda National Outreach Project

Since 2006 bilingual and bicultural Latina victim advocates and allies across the nation have collaborated to produce and pilot test products for the Existe Ayuda (help exists) National Outreach Project. The goal of the Existe Ayuda (help exists) National Outreach Project is to produce replicable Spanish-language outreach tools and training resources which can be disseminated and used to improve the cultural competence of service providers and improve the accessibility of services for Spanish-speaking victims of sexual violence.

Sexual Assault Survivor Resources in Spanish

Due to the many requests for service information from Latina survivors, Arte Sana decided to compile a list of sexual assault victim services available in Spanish across the nation. The aim was to create a simple information access route for Latina/o victims of sexual assault who prefer or require services in Spanish. Also, the Spanish language resource cards (pictured left) are no longer available.

An Urgent Call to Action on Behalf of Latinas

In this country, there is a serious crisis revolving around Latina victim advocates working in the anti-violence movement. More and more Latino/a communities suffer from a lack of bilingual and bicultural direct service staff, trainers, and volunteers. Developed by Latina victim advocates during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, this new position statement reveals some of the real-life exploitative experiences suffered by both Latina survivors and victim advocates across the nation. It also offers some concrete steps for retaining their services and expertise.
