News & Events
Jerry Tello is reviewing results of a survey (mailed in July) of 1000 of our colleagues which aimed to glean at the needs for technical assistance and training within the organizations. The survey will soon be on the web and we ask that you take a minute to fill it out and submit it to us so that we can add to this effort.

Belsie González, Resource Development Project Manager in collaboration with the VAWO Technical Assistance Program partners, Georgia State University, Benedictine Resource Center, Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence, National Compadres Network and Violence Intervention Program, Inc. mailed (in May) a survey asking six hundred VAWO grantees/sub grantees and other domestic violence service providers across the nation to identify and prioritize the types of domestic violence materials that they need most urgently to serve Latina/o survivors of domestic violence. She is now busy analyzing all the results.
Spanish Version
In January 2002, Alianza moved into its own office space in East Harlem, in New York City, after being housed for a year by our host agency and fiscal agent—the Violence Intervention Program. The new space has allowed us to accommodate a larger staff and to more adequately meet the expanding needs of Alianza.
The Alianza, in collaboration with Georgia State University, held a national Research Forum (Encuentro) in March 2002 and will publish a report of the proceedings and recommendations.
The Alianza published the final report of the First National Latino Policy Summit on Domestic Violence. Download a pdf version of the Executive Summary of the Report.
The Alianza was awarded a grant by the Violence Against Women Office (VAWO) of the U.S. Department of Justice to develop culturally competent DV materials in Spanish. Belsie Gonzalez has been heading the project which will develop Spanish-language materials to assist domestic violence organizations to better serve Latino/a communities.
