Resources on Asylum Options for Survivors of Gender-based Violence Now Available!

We are letting you know about a special project we started awhile back with CGRS and Tahirih, melding the holistic approach to helping survivors of gender-based violence with bringing in new folks (as well as providing a refersher) to do asylum for those released from family detention.  The results of this effort are free; we hope you find them useful!

TRAINING RESOURCE (this resource can also be found in our clearinghouse under Representing Survivors Seeking Asylum)

ASISTA, Center for Gender and Refugee Studies (CGRS), and the Tahirih Justice Center present a pre-recorded webinar series for attorneys, accredited representatives, domestic and sexual violence advocates, mental health service providers and social workers already familiar with VAWA and U visas to help women and children released from family detention centers, including 

  • An overview of the asylum framework, help participants with issue spotting and identifying red flags, discuss asylum’s intersections with other forms of immigration relief (SIJS, Tvisa, etc.)
  • The mechanics of preparing an asylum application for survivors of gender based violence, including key processes and procedures
  • A discussion of complex legal issues, including one-year deadline issues, framing "particular social groups," and preparing successful litigation strategies
