  • Awareness + Action = Social Change

    October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and GSSOAZ is partnering with Emerge, YWCA, and many other organizations by by being a part of the equation: Awareness + Action = Social Change.

    Witnessing violence as a child is the strongest risk factor in transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next.  Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse their own partners and children when they become adults.  Every 44 minutes in Arizona, one or more children witness domestic violence.  Up to 60% of perpetrators of intimate partner violence also abuse their children. This has to stop.  It can be overwhleming to think about, but we can start with things that are easy to do.

    Participate in Wear Purple Day, October 23rd.  Organize your workplace and or family to participate, post pictures to your social media accounts with #DVAM2015.  Go online and educate yourselves, donate your time and/or resources to a local shelter, find ways to help with prevention by fostering healthy relationships and being the example.

  • AJ Goes Rock Climbing!

    This summer, we took the girls in Adelante Jovencitas to Rock and Ropes rock climbing gym. It was a first for many of them and they were really excited. At first, a few of the girls were hesitant because they didn’t think it looked safe, but they got over their fears pretty quickly! The next thing you know they are climbing on the walls that are slanted! It was awesome to see them step up to the challenge, experience something new, and support one another!
