Join us for plenary sessions followed by interactive workshops that provide opportunities for in-depth information, skill building exercises, practice opportunities and group discussions. Participants will learn and share creative strategies while focusing on a wide range of advocacy options for immigrant survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault or other crimes. Plenary sessions and workshops will provide practical tools and address the best practices to strengthen family law and custody cases, increase safety by ensuring access to public benefits, subsidized health care, VAWA confidentiality protections, and victim based immigration remedies and protection orders for immigrant survivors. Participants will also focus on how to deliver services or provide representation in a manner that promotes healing from trauma.
