Central American Women's Delegation to End Gender-Based Violence, July 2012
The Seattle International Foundation partnered with the U.S. Department of State to host and provide training to a delegation of ten Central American women leaders in Seattle from July 22-28. These leaders are working to promote women’s rights and address the critical issue of sexual and gender-based violence in Central America.

The delegation met with various private and public institutions focused on domestic violence to enhance their knowledge around the latest strategies, service models, and public policies used to address violence against women.

The week-long training program included the participation of local organizations such as: Consejo; City of Seattle Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Prevention Council; Harborview Center for Sexual Assault and Traumatic Stress; King County Sexual Assault Resource Center; Lifewire; New Beginnings; Northwest Immigrant Rights Project; PATH; King County Superior Court Prosecuting Attorney and Protection Order Advocacy Program; Seattle Police Department Domestic Violence Unit, Victim Support Team; and the Washington State and King County Coalitions against Domestic Violence.
