Immigrant & Refugee Women's Rights Project
To address violence against women in immigrant and refugee communities, we must recognize the unique challenges facing immigrant and refugee women as they struggle for safety in this country. While progress has been made to develop services, enacting protective laws, and educating communities on addressing the issue of intimate partner violence in the United States, immigrant and refugee communities still face challenges. At the FVPF we work to educate advocates on the needs of immigrant and refugee women; educate women about their rights; and support immigrant and refugee women as emerging leaders in their communities. This site will focus on providing tools, resources, and intervention strategies on intimate partner violence in immigrant and refugee communities.
