Helping Those Released from Family Detention: Asylum Options for Immigrant Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence

This three-part webinar series is for attorneys, accredited representatives, domestic and sexual violence advocates, mental health service providers, and social workers already familiar with VAWA and U visas to help women and children released from family detention centers. Specifically, it is designed to expand your knowledge and capacity to help survivors fleeing domestic and sexual violence in their home countries apply for asylum. We encourage teams of lawyers and non-legal advocates to participate together. This webinar series is proudly presented by ASISTA, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, and Tahirih Justice Center.

What You’ll Learn in Part One

Part One of this webinar series will give participants an overview of the asylum framework, help participants with issue spotting and identifying red flags, discuss asylum’s intersections with other forms of relief (SIJS, T visa, etc.), and explain how teams of attorneys and advocates working together can best meet the holistic needs of survivors.
2-3:30 p.m. EST
