What is SASS’s Latinx Connection Program?

SASS recognizes the need for culturally- and linguistically-specific services. The Latinx Connection Program offers:

  • Crisis intervention and advocacy services to Latinx survivors of sexual violence. 
  • Outreach to organizations and community groups.
  • Linguistically- and culturally-specific information about sexual violence and SASS services.
Current programs include:
Mujeres Support Group
