A call to action for culturally specific gender-based violence services for Indigenous Latin@s

Esperanza United (formerly Casa de Esperanza: National Latin@ Network), calls for equity in care and culturally responsive services for Indigenous Latin@ communities. This call to action examines the experiences of gender-based violence (GBV) among Indigenous Latin@s in the United States, the unique challenges in accessing care by Indigenous Latin@s, promising strategies in working with Indigenous communities, and recommendations for future work to address GBV among Indigenous communities. 

This report was created in collaboration with the Binational Center for the Development of Oaxacan Indigenous Communities and Esperanza United (formerly Casa de Esperanza: National Latin@ Network). Our intent is to highlight the strengths and realities of our Indigenous Latin@ families and to inform the continued work that needs to be done to bring justice and equity to our community.
