Event description

Description

Trainer: Latin American Women's Rights Service

The Latin American Women’s Rights Service is a human rights, feminist organisation run for Latin American women, and 100% run by Latin American women. Their mission is to reach out and provide tools to empower Latin American women in the UK to pursue personal and social change. They help women to assert their rights to be free from all forms of discrimination and violence, lead empowered and fulfilled lives, enjoy their human rights to the full and become central actors in achieving social change.

This training opportunity is relevant for frontline workers or any of those who want to expand their awareness on so called ‘honour’ based violence and forced marriage. The course will cover harmful practices operating in many cultures, not just within a Latin American context.
