April 2014 – Rompamos el Silencio
In April 2014, MUJER launched the Hasta Aqui No Mas / Draw the Line campaign at an event we organized called, Rompamos El Silencio, where we invited community leaders to discuss sexual and cultural myths and how they negatively affect the Latin-American community. Through a panel discussion with notable men and women in the Latin-American community, a member of the White Ribbon campaign, joining the panel via Skype, the vibrant discussion showcased an array of opinions, beliefs and ideas of how the Latin-American community can work together to challenge and confront sexual violence within our community.
