Program Areas

Alianza carries out work in four major areas:

Community Education and Development
Alianza’s goals in this area are to: raise awareness about domestic violence in Latino communities – its existence, prevalence, nature, and its damaging effects; provide information about rights, options, resources, and services. Alianza does this through the media, community forums, special events, and the distribution of materials.
