The mission of Caminar Latino is to create opportunities for Latino families to transform their lives and communities and change the social conditions that give rise to violence. That’s the reason that in addition to our Family Initiatives, we focus on our community initiatives and Latino’s United for Peace and Equity. These initiatives include Training and Technical Assistance (TA) for other agencies and professionals in the community, across the country, and internationally.
Caminar Latino has a 28 year trajectory of working with Latino families affected by violence and a combined 200+ years of experience among its team members. Regardless of the quantity and quality of experience, we recognize that we cannot fulfill our mission by ourselves and we wish to extend it by training those in their communities to do the job of “healing families, ending violence”.
CL members have provided and continue to provide training in a broad array of topics, including but not limited to:
- Working with Latina survivors of domestic violence
- Healthy, unhealthy and abusive relationships
- How to work with youth witnesses of violence
- Engaging Latin@ youth to end teen dating violence
