Session 1: Assessing Relief: An Overview of Survivor-Based Immigration Protections
Immmigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking and other crimes face myriad barriers accessing safety and justice. To combat these barriers, the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) created special paths to secure immigration status. In this interactive session, participants will examine these protections, take an in-depth look at their requirements, and evaluate which relief options are best for their clients.
