The following activists and organizations not only prove that help is out there for the Latinx community but a reminder that you’re not alone.

“I’m a DV survivor. I overcame troublesome relationships that could have ended my life and wrecked my future. I was afraid of leaving since it was a normal state in my life -well, that’s what I thought. But one day my heart said ENOUGH! Through the pain, shame, and scars that unfortunately, I physically still live with today, I was able to go forward in life. I was able to escape and end what was killing my light. I had to end the fear that was questioning my faith. Being afraid showed I lacked in faith. But enough was enough. My desire to be “alive” was stronger then how I was. I no longer was capable of giving power to dead and hopeless situations, people, and things. I chose to go forward unafraid, Pa’Lante Sin Miedo.” -Sarah💋 #YoSoyEllaInc Founder #PaLanteSinMiedo 🇵🇦🇵🇦🇵🇦
