Internship Year:

During my internship I worked on Centro Las Libres’ Legal Abortion Project. This project was part of a larger effort to monitor and analyze the procedures by which government and private agencies specializing in sexual crimes handle rape cases. I was responsible for interviewing social workers, psychologists, doctors and persons in charge of setting policy within private and public hospitals and other government entities. Centro Las Libres is also working on building a statewide network of youth health promoters. Young people received trainings focused on topics such as family planning, violence, sexual and reproductive rights and advocacy skills. I was involved in this project as a facilitator.
