About 20 advocates and other service providers, from throughout New Mexico and as far away as Chicago, Texas and Washington, attended Alianza's first Pilot training on Financial Literacy/Money Management and How to Start and Maintain Your Own Business. The training was delivered jointly by Ivonne Ortiz, Alianza's Training & TA Coordinator, and Jo Ann Garay, Program Coordinator and Trainer, for WESST (Women's Economic Self-Sufficiency Team). The trainers engaged the women in interactive exercises that gave them a real feel for what it's like to effectively manage their finances and to plan, finance and market a business. Albuquerque business owners Cecilia Baca (Cecilia's Café) and Dawn Maestas (LLC, Laser Tatoo Removal) and Eri Flor and Aurea Miros, from MIJAS Restaurant in Olympia, WA, made presentations and offered technical advice to the trainees.

Alianza is working in partnership with several DV organizations and other CBOs to host the trainings in each respective region. To request a training in your area contact: pamo@dvalianza.org.

Dozens Attend Alianza Video Screening in New Mexico (See Photo Gallery)

The 28-minute video, produced by Alianza and Arnold Trujillo (A Trujillo Production), features several survivors who were able to break away from violent and abusive relationships and are now living financially independent lives that are free of violence. The women have wonderful lessons and knowledge that will inspire not only victims of domestic violence, but also other women who want to make a better life. They not only tell us about the enormous challenges they faced and had to overcome, but they talk about the strength, support, and opportunities that helped them on their journeys to rebuild their lives and become successful business owners.

The video, accompanies a train-the-trainer curriculum produced as part of Alianza's Financial Independence for Survivors of Domestic Violence Training Project.

Staff of Alianza and National Compadres Network are joined for a group photo by trainees who came to Albuquerque from various parts of the country.

Alianza's Working with Men and Boys to End Domestic Violence national training, held October 17 and 18 in Albuquerque, NM, was definitely not your "typical" domestic violence training. "This has honestly been the best training I have ever attended," shared one trainee. "It has provided me with the opportunity to bring my beliefs and culture into my everyday work." Another stated: "Awesome training. Speakers are very knowledgeable and engaging. Interaction and methods of training are understandable, heart-felt, and relative to the culture and population of our area."

The training was a profoundly moving and, at times, a gut-wrenching experience for both trainers and trainees, who traveled from various parts of the country. The powerful dramatizations by Jerry Tello, of personal experiences with his familia- abuelita, dad, mom, children, and grandchildren-kept participants' attention riveted throughout both days.
