October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Join us October 2 for the Annual Mujeres de Paz Candlelight Vigil

Did you know that one in four women (25%) experiences domestic violence in her lifetime?* 

Every year we walk to honor survivors and victims, their families and friends. Our journey begins at the mural of the La Virgen De Guadalupe on the corner of Mednik and Cesar Chavez Avenue. The procession travels to Collegian and Cesar Chavez, and ends at the East Los Angeles College Performing Arts Center Courtyard where ceremonies include inspiring stories, dance, and song. 

Join us.  Bring friends and family.  Take a stand and stand in solidarity with us against violence.

With gratitude to our sponsors: Pan American Bank and the Campus Violence Intervention Team, Associated Student Union, Feminist Club, and Dance Department at the East Los Angeles College.

Did you know?

    Every 9 ½ minutes, someone in the United States is infected with HIV and 1 in 5 don’t know their status.

    Half of all new HIV infections in the U.S. occur in people 25 years of age or younger.

    Every day in Los Angeles, seven more people are infected with HIV.

We are stronger together.  Be a part of this amazing day.

Announcing Instituto de Promotora


The East Los Angeles Women’s Center is proud to announce the expansion of our pioneering Promotora programs to provide technical training and assistance to collaborative partners in four communities throughout California.

The project, Instituto de Promotora, funded with a grant from the Blue Shield Foundation, will advance knowledge in the field of domestic violence by presenting methodologies to implement the empowerment-based Promotora model to better serve Latina women and girls in low-income, underserved communities.

ELAWC will serve as lead agency for the collaborative.The Promotora model, a proven, culturally competent approach, empowers and build relationships with women and girls isolated by culture and impacted by violence. Promotoras are trained and certified paraprofessionals who serve as trusted resources for women in their communities, helping families navigate healthcare and social service systems, teaching prevention for sexually transmitted disease, sexual and domestic violence, and building awareness for basic human rights

The Instituto de Promotora will focus on delivering training and technical assistance to increase the capacity of organizations to effectively assess institutional readiness and implement a Promotora program. In addition to on-site training, ELAWC will develop and deliver a comprehensive toolkit and online access to research, articles, calendars, recorded webinars, and training materials.
