This June, we’re celebrating Pride Month with a special guest, Haydee Lopez Rosado, from Esperanza United. Haydee, a Specialist in Health and Violence Prevention, joins us to discuss critical issues facing the LGBTQ community, particularly focusing on domestic violence survivors.

In this episode, Haydee shares insights about her work and a groundbreaking collaboration between Esperanza United and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. They have developed an essential planning tool designed to support and ensure the safety of Latinx LGBTQIA2S+ survivors of domestic violence.

Tune in as Haydee breaks down the unique challenges faced by these communities, such as racism, xenophobia, and institutional barriers, while also offering practical solutions and resources for support. This conversation is not only informative but also an urgent call to action for better support systems and awareness.

This resource is a guide for service providers and advocates to safety plan with LGBTQIA2S+ survivors while accounting for subtle differences and lived realities. The Los Angeles LGBT Center and Esperanza United are organizations dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Latin@ LGBTQIA2S+ folx, especially those who have experienced or are experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV).
