Enhanced Safety Planning with Immigrant Survivors
2017-06-23    

The Enhanced Safely Planning with Immigrant Survivors will provide advocates with information and best practices related to pressing immigration questions. Immigration legal experts will answer questions such as: • What should noncitizen survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault do if they come into contact with local or state law enforcement? • What should they do if they come into contact with immigration? Join us for the webinar and learn how to conduct enhanced, immigration safety planning with your noncitizen clients and help them plan ahead to protect themselves and their families. Presenters Alison Lisi and Christine Dutko from Texas RioGrande Legal Aid Inc. are attorneys specializing in immigration law and have expertise in representing survivors of domestic violence.
