Immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking often face additional challenges and barriers when seeking assistance and safety. It is imperative that domestic violence and sexual assault organizations not only ensure access to their services to all survivors, regardless of immigration status, but that they also proactively reach out to immigrant communities to let them know that the services are available to them and that they are welcomed.

This document discusses the importance of continuously enhancing outreach and access to services in order to provide a pathway to safety and well-being for immigrant survivors and their children.
