Stay connected this Sexual Assault Awareness Month!
Every year ELAWC partners with local community organizations and college campuses to raise awareness and educate the community on Sexual Assault.
This year we are doing things differently but our commitment to survivors remains. Although we won't be gathering at a local campus or community organization, we are excited to bring a number of workshops, film screenings and thought -provoking discussions you can join from the comfort of your home and even from your phone device!
Let's make this a memorable year and show our support to survivors everywhere. Despite social distance, survivors are not alone.

While our Hotline continues to operate 24/7 along with our modified remote services, we also need your help to meet the needs of all our clients during these uncertain times: covering hotel room expenses, emergency relief, food and basic needs for survival. You may also start a Fundraiser on Facebook by using your "Create Post" function and then clicking on "Support Nonprofit" and add our full name: East Los Angeles Women's Center.
5) Book a Virtual Guest Speaker - Our trained case workers and therapists can join your training or workshop and discuss: Domestic Violence 101, Sexual Assault 101, Women's Health (HIV), Stress Management, Grounding Techniques and Mindfulness
