Meet Our Panel
Lizbeth Reyes – Moderator
Lizbeth is the Prevention Coordinator at YWCA Spokane and supports the Prevention Team. Prevention looks like holding space to have conversations with teenagers about relationships that they don’t normally have with adults in their lives. Lizbeth is also leading the Teen Council, Transformations events, and education through Instagram about relationships and services.
Priscilla Hernandez – Panelist
My name is Priscilla Hernandez I was born and raised in the Wenatchee valley and moved to Cheney in summer of 2018 where I worked on getting my bachelors in children studies and minor in Spanish. I started working for MiA in July of 2022 as their children and youth sexual assault victim advocate. I hope to bring awareness and resources to those in need. Specifically those in my community who have not been given the chance to speak out due to the barriers they face in their day to day lives.
