The healing that our society so desperately needs begins at home.

Whether we fully realize it or not, how we parent has implications far beyond what happens in our homes and what happens in our children’s lives. It makes an impact in our society not just today, but in the future. 

The children we have now will be the grown ups of our future and what they learn in each of our homes will inform the society and culture they create. That means that through our parenting we have the opportunity to impact the future state of our society.

Our Decolonized Nonviolent Parenting Introductory course is our primer workshop for parents who are interested in building a more connected relationship with their children while planting seeds for a more liberated future for our people and our society.

Healing & Liberation Require Intention 

In order to heal you must understand what needs to be healed and where the wounding came from. The same applies to liberation. We must understand the areas of oppression within us and understand the context that bred that oppression.

Our DNVP intro workshop is intentionally designed to give you the foundation for planting the seeds of healing and liberation in your relationship with your niñes, your familia, and your home.

Here's what DNVP will support you with: 

Releasing any parental guilt and shame when you've acted or may  act out of alignment with Nonviolence 

Gaining insight into the historical, systemic, and familial roots of our own behaviors, as well as our children’s

practices that aid in developing emotional intelligence, autonomy, confidence, & honoring Other's needs

Strategies to implement with yourself that model healthy behavior for your children and family

Guidance on how to introduce & initiate practices that are in alignment with raising liberated families

"lo and behold the behavior stopped MUCH quicker"

A few days after the workshop, my child was having a tantrum. Prior to the workshop, my go-to would be to silence her and tell her to be quiet. I would belittle her emotions and not hold any space for her.

When this tantrum came up, I wanted to resort to what I usually say and do. But instead, I was able to look within and tell myself and say, "Wow self, you’ve been SO hurt that it's hard for you to empathize with your child. You never had space held for your feelings, no wonder it's hard for you to hold space for your child. How would it have made you feel if you DID have empathy and space held for you? model it for her!"

What happened next? I dried her tears and just held her. And lo and behold the behavior stopped MUCH quicker than if I would have tried to quiet her down or make her feel like her emotions weren't acceptable.

Meet Your Maestra

Leslie Priscilla
Leslie Priscilla Arreola-Hillenbrand is a first-generation non-Black Chicana mother to three biracial children. She is a descendant of Indigenous Tarahumara Rarámuri and Spanish lineages who has resided on occupied Tongva and Acjachemen land, also known as Orange County, CA, all of her life.

She's worked with children, families, parents, and caregivers for over 14 years in various capacities. From serving as Interim Director of Parent Education for the Child Abuse Prevention Center in Orange County, to being the Youth & Professional Programs Manager for NAMI Orange County, and as Consultant for the Dads Matter Program of Children's Bureau, Leslie's work has always centered the healing and thriving of the Latinx community.

Her vision is of a movement rooted in children's rights, social and racial justice, the individual and collective practice of nonviolence and reparenting, intergenerational and ancestral healing, cultural sustenance, and the active decolonization of oppressive practices in our families so we can collectively move towards liberation. Leslie founded Latinx Parenting, a bilingual organization, and the #EndChanclaCulture movement in support of this vision.

You can find Leslie sharing her medicine through social media posts, workshops, courses, and partnerships that support and advocate for Latinx/Chicanx families locally, nationally, and internationally, and by spending lots of time with her kids.
