In 2017, as part of the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women's audio series, Speaking Up, WJI shared the story of Gabriela, a woman from Patzún.
Gabriela and her son had faced years of abuse from her former partner. When she fell into depression and needed support, she received a visit from Viviana, a lawyer at WJI. A generous grant from the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against women supported WJI's Legal Services Program for several years.
Listen to Gabriela share her story.
