Promoting Safety and Justice for All Survivors

At LCADV, we believe all families should have the freedom to seek safety without punishment. We acknowledge decades of research showing that safe and nurturing relationships for children and families prevent abuse and help children reach their full potential. Policies that separate children from their parents and reverse asylum eligibility for domestic violence survivors further marginalize and endanger immigrant communities and embolden perpetrators of violence. Policies that attempt to draw a line between “deserving” and “undeserving” victims of violence make our communities less safe. We reject this artificial distinction, and we strongly oppose these policies. Read our full statement here: LCADV Statement – Asylum and Family Separation 6-18-18
