CSAJ's April 19th Consumer Rights Legal Roundtable: Economic and Consumer Rights for Immigrant Survivors of Domestic Violence

Event Date
Friday, April 19, 2024, 02:00PM

Immigrant survivors of domestic violence contend with numerous challenges– from adjusting to a foreign country, to dependent immigration status or lack of immigration status, to ineligibility for public assistance or fear of accessing public services due to the persistent chilling effect of the “public charge rule.” New to this country, many immigrant survivors lack an understanding of the US credit and financial system, making them particularly vulnerable to economic abuse and coerced debt. As a result, immigrant survivors face deep economic and consumer rights needs that are in need of creative, culturally relevant advocacy.

At this roundtable, presenters will:  

  • Examine the landscape of economic and consumer issues facing immigrant survivors.
  • Share and lift up innovative advocacy strategies (legal and nonlegal) to help immigrant survivors address their economic and consumer needs.
  • Build partnerships that are expansive and increase access to services and economic resources for immigrant survivors.
