ARTE SANA TRAINING INSTITUTE 2003

Reaching las Familias: EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITIES

APRIL 3-4, 2003 Embassy Suites North - AUSTIN, TX



In an effort to promote equity within victim services and improve access for under-served victims of gender-based violence, Arte Sana will be hosting a national training institute in April. Our keynote presenter will be Melissa Farley, a national expert on sexual trafficking and prostitution who has worked on issues of violence against women for the past 25 years. This institute will be a multi- disciplinary gathering directed at victim service professionals, community activists, law enforcement, medical personnel, therapists, artists, and poets working to reduce gender-based violence in our communities. The Institute’s aim is to promote ideas, tools, strategies, and program models that might help advocates and allied professionals bridge the gaps in services and become agents of change in their fields and in their communities.
