Immigration Policy Updates and Their Impact on Survivors’ Paths to Protection
Thursday, August 12th, 2021
Cecilia Friedman Levin, Policy Director (ASISTA Immigration Assistance)
Kirsten Rambo, Executive Director (ASISTA Immigration Assistance)
Over the last several years, immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence and other crimes have experienced immense barriers to accessing safety and protection. Past immigration enforcement priorities have emboldened abusers and resulted in increased trauma and risks of harm, as immigrant survivors around the country are afraid to reach out for protection due to fears of deportation.
This interactive webinar will explore how shifts in policy have created these barriers, discuss existing paths to immigration status for immigrant survivors under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) and examine the current landscape of immigration administrative and legislative policy developments (including immigration enforcement, confidentiality, access to benefits) to enhance your agency’s individual and systems advocacy on behalf of immigrant survivors.
