Spanish-language products, particularly the presentation for promotoras, are intended for use by experienced victim advocates, trainers, and promotoras who are fluent in Spanish. This will help ensure OVC’s goal of providing high-quality materials to target audiences by skilled professionals who are able to respond knowledgably to queries in Spanish.

We strongly discourage use of these materials by staff who are not fluent in Spanish in the interest of accurate communication to audiences. English translations of Spanish-language products are provided as a courtesy and are in keeping with our policy of ensuring greater accessibility to all published materials.
