What People Are Saying About Alianza’s Trainings

Carmen Murillo-Stevens ( Immigrant Advocate, San Luis Valley Immigrant Resource Center , Alamosa, CO )

Thank you so very very much for all of the work! that went into coordination, travel and presentation of “On the Road to Social Transformation” training. I very much appreciate all of the effort, care and love that was put into sharing this information with our group. It meant a lot to me to see those conversations taking place in my own community. It is very much needed work and the tools, ideas, shared stories and supportive words were all so helpful and inspirational. I hope that we have the opportunity to meet again in the future. It was a wonderful experience. Muchas gracias!

Melisa Andrion ( Community Outreach Coordinator, Womenspace , Eugene, OR )

Wonderful training-very practical on working with Latinos and culture.

I believe it will help with not only future training but also when I work with clients. I liked the ability to talk openly and share and discuss ideas.

I would recommend this training. It makes everyone thin about how we do our jobs and there is always room to improve and make things for victims. We need more training. It is hard to find good training for diverse communities especially Spanish speaking.

Very helpful. The booklets are great tools. Additional training is needed in this community. Thank you very much!
