42-Hour Sexual Assault Training

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Mujeres’ Sexual Assault training is designed to educate and engage volunteers to support survivors of sexual violence by providing crisis intervention and medical advocacy services. Training participants will gain a holistic understanding of the social, psychological, medical and legal aspects of sexual violence. Volunteers are on weekly, pre-scheduled rotations and respond to calls at four area hospitals: Mercy, Saint Anthony, Norwegian American, and the Veterans Administration. To adequately prepare volunteers, a 42-hour rape crisis training is required that trains volunteers as sexual assault advocates in Illinois. Training will be given by Mujeres Latinas en Acción and will take place at their 2124 W. 21st Place office. Dates and times are as follows:
