CAP_working_together1RCGV members Rubén Parra-Cardona, Cris Sullivan, Gaby López Zerón, and Rocio Escobar-Chew were honored to host Dr. Elizabeth Aguilar May 14th to discuss disseminating the Community Advocacy Project to Latin America. Dr. Aguilar is the Director of Centro de Investigación Familiar A.C. and was awarded a USAID grant last year to conduct a feasibility study of CAP in Monterrey, Mexico. That study was very successful and we hope to further disseminate CAP in Mexico as well as Guatemala (under the direction of Rocio Escobar-Chew) and Honduras (under the direction of Gaby López Zerón).

About RCGV

MSU’s Research Consortium on Gender-Based Violence faculty and staff are dedicated to research and outreach initiatives related to ending and preventing gender-based violence and improving the community response to survivors.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a significant and widespread social problem internationally, devastating adults, children, families and societies across the globe. It includes any form of harm that is both a consequence and cause of gender power inequities. It can be physical, psychological, sexual, economic, or sociocultural, and includes but is not limited to sexual abuse, rape, intimate partner abuse, incest, sexual harassment, stalking, femicide, trafficking, gendered hate crimes and dowry abuse. Gender-based violence intersects with race-based, class-based or religiously oppressive forms of abuse, and cross-cuts many other social problems (e.g., poverty, substance abuse, mental and physical health, crime).
