This booklet summarizes efforts undertaken by Alianza to understand and help develop responses to the particular challenges and barriers faced by Spanish-speaking Latina survivors and by organizations that seek to provide prevention and intervention services for them and their families. It is part of a series of materials developed to assist domestic violence service providers in providing culturally and linguistically competent services to Latinas who are predominantly Spanish speakers.

This report summarizes the goals, objectives and components of a bilingual Public Awareness Campaign developed by Alianza in 2001.
