Justice and Witness Ministries United Church of ChristThis webinar is sponsored by the United Church of Christ as a part of their Fall Webinar Series, God is Still Speaking: Growing Safe and Healthy Congregations and Families in the Church.

Ivonne Ortiz has been providing grass roots leadership in the domestic violence movement for more than fifteen years. She has contributed to the anti-domestic violence movement at the local and national level in many ways. Ms. Ortiz has provided a wide range of technical assistance and training services to many domestic violence programs throughout the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico. She is currently Training and TA Project Coordinator for Alianza, The National Latino Alliance for the Elimination of Domestic Violence.

Latin@s in the U.S. are a very diverse community both culturally and religiously. The strong cultural values about family and faith represent particular challenges in confronting domestic violence. But they also can represent particular strengths. This webinar will address:

  • The context of Latin@ culture
  • The diversity of religious and spiritual beliefs and practices
  • The specific religious values that shape an individual’s response to domestic violence
  • How does domestic violence create a crisis of faith for a Latin@?
  • The spiritual resources available to support victims and survivors
  • How can a Latin@ seek support both inside and outside her community?
