Latinx Advocacy Program
The Latinx Advocacy Program was created to help individuals that had been victims of domestic violence and sexual violence. The main goal is to provide comprehensive services to Latinx victims and to ensure that their voices are heard during the criminal process, regardless of their immigration status, cultural, and language barriers.
