Thursday, October 19, 2017 10:00:00 AM PDT - 11:30:00 AM PDT
Abusers often use the threat of immigration enforcement as a way to maintain power and control and to make victims less likely to seek protection. For this reason, it is important for advocates to understand how to: help immigrant survivors become aware of their rights; identify immigration remedies for victims, including special VAWA provisions around confidentiality; prepare enhanced safety plans for immigrant survivors; and increase meaningful access to services for immigrants and survivors with limited English proficiency. This training will also provide updates on recent immigration policy developments and new enforcement measures that impact immigrant survivors. During the webinar participants will learn how to: • Identify ways to help immigrant survivors access legal protections through VAWA immigration remedies and confidentiality protections; • Learn about the rights of immigrant survivors to access services necessary to protect life or safety and to have meaningful language access to services; and • Access reliable and updated resources for helping immigrant survivors.
