We'll be celebrating our powerful history.... like our co-founders helping to create laws that have protected hundreds and thousands of survivors and their children.

We’ll also have some very special guests and some other great surprises!

Your support will make a tangible difference in the lives of immigrant survivors who have faced unimaginable challenges.  This event is more than a celebration; it will also provide resources needed to allow for swift responses to harmful practices against immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence into the future. 

Our goal is $35,000 and we can get there with your help.

With over 2,500 members nationwide, ASISTA’s critical work includes:

  • teaching lawyers and advocates how to stop survivor deportations through expert case consultation, training, and practical resources on up-to-the-minute legal developments affecting immigrant survivors of violence; 
  • pushing for federal, state and local policies that ensure safety and justice for immigrant survivors of gender-based violence; and
  • developing and supporting litigation campaigns to prevent the government from unfairly deporting survivors of violence.
