Enhanced Safety Planning for Immigrants Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence


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 recorded webinar discusses recent immigration policy developments and new enforcement measures that should be taken into consideration when assisting immigrant survivors with safety planning.

The webinar was recorded in English and Spanish.
