E.W. Scripps Company’s NBC26 Green Bay, Wis., introduced viewers to Milly Gonzales, executive director of HELP of Door County, who helps provide the community with programs and resources for domestic abuse victims. "My mission is to make sure that I am advocating for victims of domestic violence, that I am advocating for those that are most marginalized in the community and my culture," said Gonzales. Gonzales credits her ability to speak her mind and passionately advocate for those in need to her family and upbringing, as her mother is a political asylum refugee from El Salvador. “I think especially as a Latina, we’re born to advocate, you know being able to serve people within our family, especially as a first-generation American, knowing that that’s something that I feel I was always gifted with and the reason why I advocate is because my mother, my grandmother and my tías have always advocated for me, for us and for our community,” said Gonzales.
