TC-TAT has had the opportunity to partner with indidivuals and organizations throughout California to bring you new and updated resources on working with specific communities and settings in domestic violence and teen dating violence.
As a result of these partnerships, TC-TAT has created its series, Learning from Our Communities.
In this viewing guide the staff of Community United Against Vioence (CUAV) provide TC-TAT with insights into their prevention work with the LGBTQ communities of San Francsico and provided suggestions for other advocates and practitioners for engaging with the LGBTQ communities in their area.
Written by Ana Paula Noquez Mercado, former MALEDEF DV Prevention Program Coordinator, this paper focuses on the Promotoras para las Relaciones Sanas ("Promotoras for Healthy Relationships") project developed and run by the Domestic Violence Prevention Program (DVPP) of the Medican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) in conjuction with the Centeral American Resource Center (CARECEN), both based in Los Angeles.
Lynda Smallenburger, Executive Director, shares with TC-TAT an example of outreach and prevention work carried out by the Kene Me-Wu Family Healing Center within the Native American communities in Tuolumne County and outlaying counties.
