Silvia Gonsalez: Co-Presenter

  • Silvia Gonsalez, a native of Denver Colorado, was introduced to Servicios de La Raza in 2001 when she became a participant of the youth program.  She successfully completed the program in 2005 and graduated from Denver North High School in 2006.  After starting as a Servicios employee in 2009, Silvia became the Program Coordinator for Servicios’ Victims in Safe Transition and Self-Sufficiency Program (VISTAS) in 2010. Primarily her work focuses on victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.  She’s actively involved with various community coalitions and boards advocating for victims and victim’s rights specifically within the Latino Spanish speaking community.  As a result of her expertise in the domestic violence field, Silvia has been asked to be involved with the Rose Andom Center Planning Committee, Fatality Review Committee, Social Justice Change Committee, Denver Domestic Violence Coordinating Council, and Colorado State Forensic Compliance Statewide Committee.  Recently Silvia has been a regional trainer to train other agencies, schools, law enforcement and volunteers.
