Immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault often face increased risks to their safety due not only to their abusers, but also due to life-generated and system-generated risks. The impacts of these life and system generated risks have been highlighted recently following changes in federal agency practices and policies. In this environment, it is important for advocates to understand how recent policy changes impact how advocates can work with immigrant survivors to address the current reality. These workshops will offer opportunities for advocates increase their knowledge about opportunities for individual, organizational, and systems advocacy to support immigrant survivors.

Part 2: I will cover understanding how recent federal immigration policy changes impact life-generated risks for immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and supporting victim advocacy programs in strengthening their organizational practices related to immigration enforcement.
