Alianza staff has been trekking around the country for the last few months delivering trainings for Domestic Violence advocates and other service providers who work with Latino women, men and children. We want to share some of our training experiences.

  • During the first week of June 2010, Alianza was invited to share two exciting days with the staff of the Violence Intervention Program in East Harlem (El Barrio) in New York City. Elsa Rios, Alianza's On the Road to Social Transformation author, with the help of Ivonne Ortiz, now Alianza’s T&TA Project Coordinator, guided the group through the first leg of the journey to becoming culturally proficient. After a nice subway trip and a short taxi ride we arrived at "Casa Sandra," our training site for the next two days. Casa Sandra is VIP's state of the art transitional shelter for women and children. The shelter was named after Sandra Camacho, long-time women's rights activist, who was VIP's former Associate Director and one of Alianza's founding members. She passed away in 2003. Casa Sandra is able to house 15 families. Survivors coming out of domestic shelters are provided with safe longer term housing and supportive services in order to help them break the cycle of violence.
