Lifting Latinx Voices Initiative
Lifting Latinx Voices Initiative (LLVI) is the only Latinx led program in Georgia that focuses on addressing comprehensive reproductive and sexual health issues faced by Latinx families.
What we do
Through education, outreach and leadership development for the last 12 years, our innovative grassroots work has created key partnerships that have allowed us to identify and develop community leaders. By placing our voices, our stories, and our leadership at the center of our efforts as diverse Latinx people, we’ve been able to build connections and trust, while strengthening the movement for reproductive justice in Georgia. We aim to promote all our services and activities at Feminist Center in a culturally appropriate way considering the challenges of language barriers, immigration status and cultural stigma attached to sex and abortion. Our main service offerings include:
Workshops: We offer workshops and trainings through organizations like CETPA, the Mexican consulate and the Latin American Association on topics like gynecological healthcare, sexually transmitted diseases, reproductive coercion, LGBTQIA+ issues and rights, etc.
House parties: We recognize the value of safe spaces when talking about sensitive issues like sexual and reproductive health. This is why we work with community members to organize house parties where we discuss sexual and reproductive health in the comfort and safety of people’s homes. To organize a house party for your family and friends you can call us at 404-248-5457 or email us at [email protected].
Promotoras Training (Community health workers): We provide training opportunities to identify and develop lay health workers within our own communities. Promotoras help improve access to culturally sensitive gynecological health care; provide crucial sexual and reproductive health education; and offer referrals to health services.
