Take Action Toolkit For Asylum For Survivors
On June 11th, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a decision in an immigration case brought by a victim of domestic violence seeking asylum in the United States. The decision attempts to erode protections for immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault seeking asylum.
At a time when violence against women and girls is a global crisis, a decision to deny protection to women fleeing gender violence is a grave mistake. It is now more important than ever to reach out to take action to defend these critical protections for immigrant survivors.
Download the toolkit we built with our partners at the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies for more information about how to lift up your voice and help protect asylum for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
