December 14, 2020: Domestic and Sexual Violence Victims and the U Visa: Law Enforcement Best Practices Technical Assistance Overview- ICJR Orientation (Webinar)

During this webinar, we explored the wide range of topics and various ways NIWAP can support your work with immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. We also discussed how you can hold offenders more accountable by using the U Visa certification as a crime-fighting tool, by enhancing domestic/sexual violence/stalking victim & community safety using the U and T visa certification programs. The use of pretrial & trial strategies was discussed to combat common defenses in cases involving immigrant victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence.

If you are a law enforcement officer, prosecutor, or a victim advocate, or other staff working for a law enforcement or prosecution agency and are working with immigrant victims and you would like to receive case-specific technical assistance on immigration protections for immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence victims and their children, please call NIWAP for technical assistance.
