Guam - The Guam Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence welcomed Dr. Bea Hanson to the island.

Dr. Hanson who serves as the office on violence against women principal deputy director was excited to hear from local NGO's and government partners.

"We want to continue the dialogue of hearing from you about what do you think are the unique issues you're dealing with here. What are some of things that you're most proud of in terms of the work you're doing here in addressing violence against women," she said.

And good news for all grant recipients as Dr. Hanson noted that starting this year, there shall be no discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender, or identity.

Now that discrimination is no longer an issue, she added that it's critical that service providers open and welcome everyone to avail their services as well as understand who comprises the community.
