Latina survivors of gender-based violence face several challenges that require meaningful collaborations to provide comprehensive services. Casa de Esperanza has been providing direct services to Latina survivors for over 35 years, and national training and technical assistance for over 10 years. The session will provide participants with an understanding of the concepts related to community/mobile advocacy, Latina realities, meaningful collaborations and coordinated community response. Based in our local and national experience, participants will reflect on Latina realities for survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and human trafficking and learn how community/mobile advocacy meets participants needs. This process has proven to be more effective in establishing relationships with participants and coordinating several services to address their needs.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Describe the foundations of community/mobile advocacy.
  • Recognize the realities of Latina survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and human trafficking.
  • Examine the basics of community/mobile advocacy and how the approach is meaningful to Latinas.
  • Explore Casa de Esperanza’s experience implementing the community/mobile advocacy framework.
