I’ve been enjoying reading all of these wonderful replies from new members - thank you for introducing yourselves! You are very welcome here and I look forward to talking more with you in the coming weeks and months.

By the way - we’ve had many new members from non-english speaking countries. Feel free to write in your language, and we can all use the translate button (looks like a globe on the post menu) to read in our own language. Many languages are supported. Contact me if you have questions about this.

Some more responses below.

Students are very welcome here! You can do so much to connect practitioners with information that can help them, while also learning from them about their successes and challenges.

As regards internships, I suggest you keep an eye out in the forum for #opportunities and also the recruitment page on If there are organizations you find out about through the network you can also check with them directly. Let us know here how it goes! :seedling:

Hi Ana! Thanks for the reply. It’s interesting to hear about the projects you have planned in Guatemala. Can you tell us some more about the law against femicide itself, who you are seeking to reach through your workshops and what success will look like? Are there examples form other countries you are already looking at that you can tell us some more about? Telling us these things will give other members concrete thoughts to respond to.
