Entrenamiento De Asesoria Contra El Abuso Sexual

Estamos entusiasmados de anunciar que la Coalición de Utah Contra el Asalto Sexual, UNP Hartland Partnership Center y Centro de Recuperación de Abuso Sexual se han asociado este verano para ofrecer el primer entrenamiento de asesoría totalmente conducido en español en el estado de Utah. La violencia sexual afecta a todas las comunidades. También sabemos que la comunidad latino/a experimenta violencia a tasas desproporcionadamente altas, tienen menos probabilidades de buscar servicios y son menos probables de reportar sus asaltos. Según el estudio de No Más (2015) 49% de Latina/o’s menores conocen a una víctima de violencia doméstica. Veinticinco por ciento de los latinos/as menores de 30 años y 27% menores de 25 años conocen a una víctima de agresión sexual. Esta capacitación nos ayudará a servir mejor a la comunidad latino/a y lanzar una línea de crisis en español en el año 2020. Cada participante aprenderá habilidades de asesoría, prevención y empoderamiento hacia el objetivo de poner fin a la violencia sexual en nuestro estado. Nuestras agencias han trabajado arduamente durante el último año para construir un currículo que abarque los matices de este problema. La capacitación incluye temas como violencia sexual infantil, trauma, intervención en crisis, prevención y mucho más.

We are excited to announce that the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, UNP Hartland Partnership Center and the Rape Recovery Center have partnered to hold the first fully Spanish language Advocacy Training in the State of Utah, to take place this summer. Sexual violence affects all communities. We also know that the Latino/a community experiences violence at disproportionately high rates, are less likely to seek services and less likely report their assaults. According to No Mas Study (2015) 49% of Latina/o’s under 30 years old and 44% under 25 years old know a victim of domestic violence. 25% of Latino/a’s under 30 years old and 27% under 25 years old know a victim of sexual assault. This training will help us better serve the Latino/a community and launch a Spanish crisis line in 2020. Each participant will learn advocacy, prevention and empowerment skills towards the goal of ending sexual violence in our state. Our agencies have worked hard over the last year to build a curriculum that encompasses the nuances of this issue. The training includes topics such as childhood sexual violence, trauma, crisis intervention, prevention and much more.

THE LOVE GANG FOREVER TOUR 2019: COLD HART & HORSE HEAD with Fish Narc, Yawns, Lil Zubin, Fantasy Camp

Under the pseudonym Cold Hart, Jerick “Jay” Quilisadio has consistently been on the cutting edge of alternative hip-hop as a vocalist, songwriter, and producer. Singing in a low baritone, Cold Hart sets a cinematic scene with his emotionally charged lyrics that touch upon heartbreak, self-medication, and depression. By pairing components of rap with seemingly unrelated genres like emo, gothic rock, and even country, Cold Hart has become an innovator of genre-defying music. 

Born and raised in the coastal city of Long Beach, California, Cold Hart was seldom seen without a skateboard in his hand. He would play records by post-punk’s Nick Cave or the Cure just as often as he would listen to rappers Speaker Knockerz and Chief Keef. With an increased interest in music, Cold Hart taught himself both the guitar and how to produce in FL Studio.

The Accidentals with Talia Keys

Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies, FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.

They released their latest single, "Heavy Flag," produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray, The Decemberists) in October, and they aren’t slowing down going into 2019. They are currently scoring an indie film, touring, teaching workshops across the country, and releasing new music.

PopMatters says you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “The Beatles, Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Ani Difranco, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, etc." NPR says “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression,” adding, “they might be the most compelling songwriters of our time."

Talia Keys is a genre crossing multi-instrumental "musical powerhouse" bringing you her brand of Soul-Funk-Rock n' Roll, with unique vocal stylings and a storytelling flow.

Sourcing energies largely compared to the bluesy rawness of Janis Joplin and the fire of Jimi Hendrix. Synergizing that old soul vibe with new school sounds, best described by Katie Bain as "blistering." Having been "struck by her talent, stage presence and refreshing candor." - Insomniac: 2014 Best of Electric Forest

As a Salt Lake City native she keeps herself busy playing regionally since 2010, Europe in 2011 and touring nationally for the past four years with her solo project Gemini Mind. - A full electric solo live looping show that captivates and captures the hearts of good people everywhere.
