Research and evaluation

Esperanza United is committed to Latin@-focused research and evaluation that promotes social justice in the fields of gender-based violence and sexual assault.

In partnership with the University of New Haven, our research center supports the next generation of culturally competent advocates, allies, and researchers working to eliminate gender-based violence. The center’s work is complemented by an advisory council of nationally recognized researchers and academics with extensive expertise in gender-based violence research, intervention, and prevention with Latin@ communities.

Our goals

Building evidence toolkit

In elevating community-based and culturally-specific work, the research team collaborated with four other Latin@ community-based organizations (La Paz, Trans Latin@ Coalition, Mujeres Latinas in Acción, and Voces Latinas) to develop an evaluation toolkit that is culturally centered and builds the capacity of community-based organizations to evaluate their work.
