Amigas Latinas, in conjunction with Casa de Esperanza and NRCDV, is hosting a webinar October 26th from 2-3:30pm CT, Examining the Prevalence of Domestic Violence Among LBTQQ Latinas in Chicago: A National Model. The webinar is free, but advanced registration is required.

From the site:

In 2007, Amigas Latinas, an organization that serves the Latina lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LBTQQ) community of Chicago, conducted an extensive community-wide survey, Project Latina: Discovering All of Us, to document and make visible the unique life experiences and challenges of Latina LBTQQ women in the Chicagoland area. About 300 participants from diverse backgrounds completed the survey. In this workshop presenters will describe some of the most significant findings of the survey related to same-sex domestic violence among LBTQQ Latinas, and learn about the community action initiatives created as a result of the survey findings. Casa de Esperanza will join Amigas Latinas in this webinar to offer an overview of their services designed to support Latina Lesbian survivors. Casa de Esperanza’s CEO will comment on their training tool/video “My Girlfriend Did It.”
