Webinar: Legal Protections for Immigrant & Refugee Survivors

Register Here

 

Date & Time: Thursday, December 14 from 10am - 11:30am

 

Description: Navigating the web of systems can be difficult for any survivor - but for immigrant and refugee survivors of sexual and domestic violence there are often additional barriers. Be it language access or conflicts with cultural expectations, a holistic approach which takes into consideration one's background and coordination among systems facilitates better access to legal protections for these survivors.

This webinar will address protections for immigrant survivors in family and immigration court and in front of the Department of Homeland Security. This will include language access in the courtroom, orders and restrictions on traveling and passports, guardianships and powers of attorney for children with underdocumented parents, VAWA Self Petition, U Nonimmigrant Status, and more. It will address what you can screen for to see if a survivor you are serving has legal protections and what are best practices when working with legal service agencies. The presentation will also discuss how these legal protections can help empower survivors, facilitating greater access to services and support.
