Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Thursday July 18, 2013

Dr. Mayra Lopez-Humphreys, Assistant Professor of Social Work, co-authored Countering the Silence: A Faith Leader's Toolkit for Preventing Teen Pregnancy. This new resource was developed to help address the high rates of teen pregnancy in the Hispanic community. It resourse was sponsored by Esperanza, one of the largest Latino faith-based evangelical networks in the United States.

The toolkit was released to 600 attendees of the annual Esperanza National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC on June 20, 2013. Twenty faith leaders, working in partnership with Esperanza, will be trained to use the toolkit and will in turn train more than 200 additional faith leaders in major metropolitan areas nationwide.
