Working Without Borders
With this section Arte Sana hopes to provide information that will help build bridges between underserved survivors and violence prevention advocates. A significant portion of the information that will be shared in this section will focus on creative strategies that incorporate the arts as vehicles of expression and reflection on violence issues. Since we believe that prevention can only be achieved with full community participation; a lot of the material shared will focus on eliminating program and leadership barriers within the fields, promoting promising practices, as well as the latest research information on underserved survivors. 
In order to provide a much-needed Spanish language information resource to Latina violence prevention advocates and survivors, the Spanish language side will include a comprehensive collection of direct service materials and research documents on gender violence. Through the Capacitadoras en Acción cooperation with Latinas from throughout the U.S. and Latin America, the Spanish language side of the website will serve as an interactive collaboration vehicle by which information and program development ideas may be shared among Latinas sin fronteras (without borders). We are grateful to all of the Latinas who have contributed and will continue to contribute their work to this section, and we are truly honored to be a part of this new cyber- activist experience.
