The Latinx Identity Project ,

Gracias

As a survivor of sexual abuse I have gone through so much healing and reflection. Until now, I have never heard sexual abuse talked about in our communities. I feel like this has opened a path in my healing I didn’t know was necessary. I will seek culturally relevant content about this going forward. Thank you!!
