El Pueblo builds the capacity of Latino community members by providing them with culturally - sensitive information and education regarding relevant public safety issues. Specifically, we raise awareness and change risky behaviors related to driving while intoxicated, the use of seat belts, child safety seats, and domestic violence and sexual assault.
We work with adult community members to develop leadership skills and share information with their peers to promote healthy living, navigate the health care system, and become advocates in their communities. With community members, we advance toward the ultimate goal of creating healthy, just communities in our state, focusing on specific topics such as the prevention of domestic violence and reproductive health.
