Enhanced Safety Planning for Immigrant Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence

Event Date
Friday, February 24, 2017, 01:30PM

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 special immigration remedies for victims, including special VAWA provisions around confidentiality; and how to prepare enhanced safety plans for immigrant survivors that take into account immigration enforcement. This webinar will also discuss recent immigration policy developments and new enforcement measures that should be taken into consideration when assisting immigrant survivors with safety planning. 

Join us for this webinar to learn how these recent developments might affect immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual assault and discuss practical ways to enhance your agency's policies, practices and advocacy. 

Objectives: By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Implement enhanced survivor and family safety planning for immigrant survivors
  • Identify key ways to protect immigrant survivors and engage in systems advocacy
  • Access reliable and updated resources for immigrant survivors, such as know your rights materials, powers of attorney templates, and other resources
