On Saturday, February 28, women leaders of Fuerza Laboral teamed up with the Center for Justice and the Sojourner House for our first ever training on sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace. This workshop was a "Training the Trainers" so that these leaders can hold more trainings and form a Women's Committee to denounce and organize against these abuses!
Rosa Hernandez (left image, on the left), training facilitator: "This workshop was helpful because Ms. Janton (Center for Justice) was able to clarify the laws, and this gives us the ability to speak about these issues. Many participants have kept quiet about their experiences because of fear. Knowing the laws will help us to better assess these situations in the future."
