Immigrant survivors face unique barriers to safety, related to their immigration status. This free webinar, featuring VIDA Legal Assistance, will discuss tools that advocates and service providers can use to strengthen safety planning strategies with immigrant survivors of domestic violence.
VIDA Legal Assistance represents immigrant survivors of violent crimes, particularly domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, and trafficking in persons. VIDA envisions an end to the cycle of violence or exploitation; where survivors are able to exercise their rights to be safe, recover, obtain stability; and use their voice to strengthen the movement against violence; and where they encounter effective systems helping them in this process. Using a client-centered, care-coordinated model, VIDA works with marginalized and vulnerable populations to end the cycle of violence and exploitation. In addition to providing immigration legal representation, VIDA partners with community organizations to provide further advocacy, referrals, care coordination, emergency relief funding and other legal services which fully support survivors and encourage self-sufficiency.
