This was my first year attending ArteSanando

When I walked in, I was mesmerized by the colors of the crafts being sold and the delicious smell of traditional foods. I was pleasantly surprised to see a good number of individuals already present, and anxiously waiting to eat. I tried containing my excitement and sat down to listen what Lorena and the participants had to say.

We are witnessing intensified attacks on the validity of survivor experiences, the value of immigrant lives and the dignity of all people of color. There is a lot at stake, with the pending renewal of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

We must review the gains we have made with big legislation like VAWA, and engage in a profoundly honest conversation about its limitations, especially for immigrants and communities of color.
