Description

According to the CDC, 1-in-3 Latina women experience domestic violence. What's more, generational trauma - stemming from immigration status, language access, financial dependence, male dominance, and much more - increases vulnerability, leads to victimization, poses significant barriers to safety and services for Latina survivors, and contributes to a "dynamic of loss" for this population. We explore this unique dynamic and focused solutions that benefit Latina women with Paula Gomez-Stordy, Senior Director of Training and Technical Assistance at Esperanza United (formerly Casa de Esperanza). Paula Gomez-Stordy has worked with survivors of abuse within various settings including courts, hospitals, and shelters and her advocacy has led to institutional change to increase the inclusion and safety of survivors. Esperanza United is founded and led by Latinas, who ground their work in listening to Latinas and their communities, lifting up their beauty, strengths, and wisdom on the journey to end gender-based violence.
