Vision & Mission


Our Vision: Immigrants live in a just world free from violence.


Our Mission: Advance the dignity, rights, and liberty of immigrant survivors of violence. 



To do this we:

  • Provide comprehensive, cutting-edge technical assistance and resources to those assisting noncitizen 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) and other government officials to ensure the law is implemented as Congress intended.
