Immigration Options for LGBQ/T Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Other Crimes
In this session, we will explore the impact of current immigration laws and policies on immigrant survivors of partner abuse, sexual assault, and other types of abuse. Participants will gain a basic understanding of the immigration system and learn how to identify immigration options that may be available to LGBQ/T immigrant survivors. We will address the unique barriers faced by LGBQ/T immigrant survivors and share advocacy tips and experiences through participant excercises, advocacy stories, and Q&A.
