Lifting Latinx Voices Initiative (LLVI) is the only latinx-led program in Georgia that addresses the reproductive and sexual health needs in latinx communities. The past few years, LLVI deepened its community work by scaling the program’s reach, expanding mutual aid efforts, and continuing its signature community health worker (promotora) training program. In addition to these incredible achievements, LLVI has spent the past few years addressing emergent community needs through new program development and focus group work. Our work has been extremely successful. In 2021-2023, LLVI has trained over 20 promotoras, conducted +100 workshops for the Latinx community, and reached over 3,000 people through outreach.
