To encourage a life free of violence, the Attorney General of the State and DIF Jalisco asked the business sector, civil society and personnel of the municipal government to collaborate with the Justice Center for Women.

The objective is to get involved through collaboration agreements, social co-responsibility and inter-institutional coordination to strengthen the prevention and timely attention to gender-based violence that affects the physical and emotional integrity of women.

In a meeting with representatives of different sectors, the president of DIF Jalisco, Lorena Jassibe Arriaga de Sandoval, acknowledged that violence against women is growing, and that the first people to detect violence are the relatives and friends of the victim.

Therefore, she invited the representatives of the society to join the actions of prevention and timely attention that will strengthen the second Justice Center for Women (CJM) of Jalisco, to form a large network of protection for women in the district.

Zulema Carrillo Núñez, the coordinator of the CJM installed in Guadalajara, pointed out the importance of joining efforts with the business sector to expand the services that allow women to acquire better tools.

He explained that women from Puerto Vallarta will have the possibility, with this Center of Justice, to present the complaint; “Right there they are going to make their psychological opinion, the gynecological expert, right there they will receive comprehensive care that currently they do not have access under one roof.”

He indicated that it will be possible to “end the institutional re-victimization and above all, strengthen them in their empowerment so that they can make firm decisions that allow them to live free of violence with their children”.

The operation of the CJM is based on a Model proposed by UN Women, which guarantees integral services, such as medical, psychological and legal assistance, access to justice and economic empowerment through employment and productive projects.

This second will serve women from the municipalities of Puerto Vallarta, Tomatlan, Cabo Corrientes, San Sebastian del Oeste and Mascota, victims of any type of aggression against the dignity of people, sexual abuse, rape, harassment and sexual harassment, family violence, abandonment of family members, threats, and injuries.
