PreventIPV Newsletter: Prevention in Latin@ Communities (Fall 2015)

Effective community-based prevention strategies require a clear understanding of the cultural narrative and context that makes each community unique. Culturally specific prevention approaches will build upon the natural strength and shared wisdom of a community's cultural values to enhance the health and well being of its individuals, families, and networks. As Casa de Esperanza and its National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities describe in the NRCDV Special Collection, Domestic Violence in Latin@ Communities, "People do not live in systems, they live in communities. Social transformation happens with knowledge and information that propels action."

The PreventIPV project is seeking to enhance its Tools Inventory with resources that are culturally and linguistically relevant to Latin@ communities in the United States. Recent additions are highlighted inside this issue. Please submit your recommendations today!
