Women's Voices: Latinas, Intimate Partner Violence & Immigration Policy (U-Visa)

General Material
Published Date
March, 2015

The aim of this study was to better understand the experience of Latinas who were recipients of the U-Visa and had been victims of domestic violence. While obtaining legal documentation was critical to becoming economically self-sufficient, this study provides a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that immigrant survivors face in the U-Visa process, as well as gaps in services.
