The work of Promotoras in their communities to end violence against women is one of the most effective culturally specific approaches that exist in our times. Promotoras started in Latin America as a way of reaching communities from within, on issues mostly related to health and wellness.Promotoras serve as liaisons between their community, health professionals, and others. As liaisons, they often play the roles of advocate, educator, mentor, outreach worker, role model, and translator. This approach has been very effective in Latin America and its strength is also evident in communities across the U.S.
Join us as we hear the voices of Promotoras from a number of Latin@ organizations in a Q & A session . Speakers will be representing Enlace Comunitario, Voces Latinas & Visión y Compromiso.
