Identifying types of violence

By: Neylin Calderón

URACCAN promotes a Gender Interculturality Perspective, creating professionals with educational values, principles, humanist attitudes and collective construction, which is why from the Multi-Ethnic Women's Information Center (CEIMM-URACCAN), a collaborative map is made to identify the types of violence that may exist in the Bilwi site.

On this occasion, it was up to the administrative guild to participate in the identification of the places where they have seen or experienced some form of violence, whether psychological, physical or sexual, in this way, all points where there is likely to be violence or discrimination will be characterized and no specialized attention has been paid to them.

About the activity

Collaborative mapAccording to Anny Arlen Marley Matamoros, CEIMM coordinator at URACCAN Bilwi, this is an exercise promoted by the Commission for the Eradication of Gender-Based Violence and Related Intolerance, who "work for the prevention, dissemination and care of situations of violence and forms of discrimination," Marley said.

The idea of doing this mapping is to "identify what types of violence may be occurring in the compound, so what we located was a map with their specific sites so that workers can identify what kind of violence is happening and where," Anny argued.

It also seeks to obtain the information collected from the collaborative maps, from the Commission so that "we can present to the authorities and be able to do some advocacy actions to prevent all such situations that generate violence and forms of discrimination between workers and students", said the COORDINATOR of CEIMM.
