“Growing up, it was customary for Ariana ‘Diosa’ Zertuche, 24, to kiss and hug family members, but she had never discussed the idea of consent. She and her mother, Maggie Zertuche, 62, explore how complex relationships and the taboos of discussing sex make it difficult for women in their family to come forward.”

“Research shows that 30 percent of women report pain during vaginal sex, 72 percent report pain during anal sex, and ‘large proportions’ don't tell their partners when sex hurts.
…At every turn, women are taught that how someone reacts to them does more to establish their goodness and worth than anything they themselves might feel.” Lili Loofbourrow #MeToo #YoTambién

Let's talk about bad sex

To explore how the conversation about sexual harassment and assault has changed in light of the #MeToo movement, we asked mothers and daughters about how they were raised to talk, react and take action.

On this day 17 years ago, Arte Sana held its first event in Austin. We are so very happy and thankful to be able to commemorate #InternationalWomensDay and Arte Sana's 17th anniversary by sharing the new #YoSoySAAM Spanish language webinar series registration page! Gracias to our wonderful state coalition partners, these will be available for free. However, as a means to raise some much needed operational funds until our next Nuestras Voces conference, our incredible presenters have agreed to allow us to sell their handouts at a nominal fee. The bottom of this page offers two handout options; the series option will include additional Spanish language materials that may be useful during and after #SAAM #SAAM2018 So mark your calendars and register for SIX free seminarios web que se presentarán en ESPAÑOL!

After collaborating with TAASA for the selection of Spanish language workshops at last year's National Sexual Assault Conference, we were thrilled to collaborate once more for this year's state conference. One of our #ALASlíderes - Elizabeth Balcarcel - will offer a keynote presentation in English as well as a taller en español. All bilingual Texas advocates who will be attending this conference arte strongly encouraged to take advantage of this special training opportunity - just take a look at los tópicos. Gracias TAASA!

"UNIDOS was started in 1996 as a group of volunteers committed to helping Latinx survivors of domestic violence access local services. The organization started as a result of social action research conducted with migrant farm worker communities in central WI between 1994 and 1996."

Please support UNIDOS so they can enhance their outreach efforts!

We will be adding this wonderful Latinx-led initiative that began in 1996 to the 'Pioneers in Latinx Victim Advocacy'chart, as well as any others you all share with us.

We are so close, when we began this campaign, many people said that we were dreamers, and of course we are dreamers! $10,000 is a big dream, over 20 years ago t...his organization was a little dream too.

A dream to help women get into a shelters, get health and legal services in their own language, by people who understood them and so was the birth of UNIDOS. With no data, no research, no staff, no office these people came together and decided to make an impact.

I'm asking you to give $5 get us to get us to 25% of our goal, if you can give and share this post we can get there by midnight tonight.

This New Horizon for UNIDOS is one where intergenerational gardening is happening, empowerment women lead groups are forming, and a full functioning 24-hour crisis line that is bilingual and bicultural.
Join us and make an impact for the next 20 years! Unidos WI

In three days - on #InternationalWomensDay Arte Sana will commemorate 17 years of #AdvocacySinFronteras that has focused on bilingual/bicultural training and outreach to engage Latinxs as agents of change. Before the #MeToo movement, bilingual Latinx victim advocates in the U.S. have been inspired by the ciberactivista efforts of our compañerxs in Latina America to dismantle rape culture and gendered assumptions. For the introduction of the use of the arroba (@) and the recen...t adoption of the ‘x’ to address gendered Spanish in outreach materials and publications, the various mobilizations like la #MarchaDeLasPutas and online campaigns against el #AcosoCallejero, we give thanks to our hermanas en la lucha throughout Latin America. We also honor the efforts of so many comadre advocate activists in the U.S who have paved the way for those who have just begun their activism in the movement. #YoTambién #YoSoySAAM

“En México, el lema de la ‘marcha de las putas’ era ‘No significa no’, pues lo que querían recalcar es que aunque algunas mujeres ejerzan la prostitución, esto no las convierte en un blanco propicio para ser agredidas sexualmente.

On this day 14 years ago, a small group of Latina advocates across the nation shared our first posts on an ALAS Yahoo group listserv created by Arte Sana. Shortly thereafter we published our first position statement (endorsed by most state coalitions across the nation) regarding eliminating language barriers within victim services.

It has been an honor to collaborate with so many incredible #ALASlíderes these 14 years to develop position statements, bilingual training opport...unities, and materials. Together, we have enhanced a collective voice to engage communities as agents of change sexual assault prevention and victim advocacy efforts.

The graphic below includes four of the seven consejos developed by ALAS members in 2014 for upgrading bilingual/bicultural Latinx outreach and victim advocacy.
They continue to be relevant today. #AdvocacySinFronteras. #YoTambién #YoSoySAAM #SAAM2018
