LA CASA DE LAS MADRES
September 27, 2013
After recently completing the 40 hour training course at La Casa, I am astounded at this program's capability. The training was incredibly intense, which is nothing less than the survivors of domestic violence, who seek resources from La Casa, deserve. I can't say enough about the people involved in facilitating this training. They were warm, friendly and both emotionally and intellectually nurturing. I never felt at any point that my contributions were any less valid than those of the teachers. In addition to being thorough, ideologically sound, and professional, the program expressed both the capacity for an effective learning environment and a vulnerability that implied desire for growth in keeping current and relevant to survivor's needs in consistently changing social justice movement. I will miss the women I was in the training with, we were a pretty bonded group at the end of the course. I would especially like to recognize Jaime Cox, a pretty spectacular activist and woman.
