Immigration, Domestic Violence, and the U-Visa

Event Date
Thursday, March 30, 2017, 01:00PM

This presentation will discuss the results of an in-depth, qualitative study of 15 Latina U Visa recipients who are survivors of intimate partner violence, and five service providers. 

The aim of this study of was to better understand the experience of Latinas who have their U Visa and have been victims of domestic violence. While obtaining legal documentation is critical to becoming economically self-sufficient, a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that women might face will provide researchers and social service providers with the necessary evidence to design effective public health interventions to meet the needs of women as they move towards emotional, social and economic stability.
