First National Latino Policy Summit On Domestic Violence
On June 22-23, 2000, Alianza convened 75 men and women representing more than 50 national and regional Latino organizations that provide leadership and services in Latino communities. The group gathered in Washington, D.C. to begin to plan a collaborative response to domestic violence in Latino communities. The Policy Summit marked the first time a dialogue of this magnitude had taken place between experts from the Latino domestic violence community—community activists, advocates, practitioners, researchers, and survivors, and Latina/o leaders from such diverse fields as immigration, women’s and children’s rights, public health, substance abuse and mental health, civil rights, religion, and the elderly.
