ASISTA seeks to enhance the security, independence, and full participation in society of immigrant and refugee survivors of gender-based violence by promoting integrated holistic approaches and educating those whose actions and attitudes affect women who experience violence.
To do this we:
-- Provide comprehensive, cutting edge technical assistance and resources to those assisting non-citizen survivors of violence in the immigration law arena;
-- Train lawyers, domestic violence and sexual assault advocates, law enforcement personnel, and civil and criminal court judges; and
-- Work closely with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials to ensure the law is implemented as Congress intended.
ASISTA does not provide direct legal services. For referrals click here.
