Limited English Proficient survivors, immigrant and refugee survivors often experience higher rates of victimization. During the COVID-19 crisis we're hearing about new challenges affecting our communities and the victim service providers working with them. This event will provide opportunity for service providers to come together to identify those challenges and strategize about creative new ways to approach them, share resources and support each other. Social distancing might increase rates of violence, hate crimes in Asian communities are on the rise and many immigrants won't receive support or healthcare during this crisis. We must ensure that our services remain inclusive and accessible to these survivors.
This listening session is an opportunity to share the needs of advocates, activists and agencies working with immigrants and Limited English Proficient survivors
