Latinos In Virginia Empowerment Center is a culturally specific non-profit located in Richmond that aims to provide education, advocacy, and support to Latino victims of violence or crime, and specifically to those who are monolingual in Spanish. They believe that everyone has the right to access support in order to stabilize their life, regardless of the language they speak. They’ve launched a trauma-informed interpreter bank to help those in need be fully present in such conversations. Their interpreters are qualified and trauma-informed, and aim to restore the autonomy of survivors through breaking language barriers.
