About Our Programs

Caminar Latino’s mission is to create opportunities for Latino families, affected by violence, to transform their lives and their communities. The way we carry out our mission is a three prong approach:

  1. Through our family initiative programming we provide opportunities for families to transform their lives by increasing a family’s capacity to identify the abusive behaviors, engage in dialogue with other people who have had similar experiences, and take action to transform their lives.
  2. Through our community initiative program Caminar Latino is able to provide opportunities for community members to recognize their own strengths and use them to stop the cycle of violence and transform the community.
  3. Through our national arm, Latinos United for Peace and Equity, we elevate the stories and visibility of survivors and communities throughout the country and work to eradicate the structural and social conditions that give rise to violence.
