Navigating Systems with your Immigrant Survivor Clients

Monday, November 14, 2022 from 2-4pm ET

(1-3pm CT/12-2pm MT/11am-1pm PT/8-10am HT)


Navigating systems ostensibly designed to serve survivors can nonetheless be confusing, demoralizing, and exhausting. Immigrant survivors frequently have well-founded fear and distrust of many of these systems. This panel discussion, appropriate for all levels, will explore some of the reasons for that fear and distrust and will address best practices for attorneys and advocates navigating systems with their immigrant survivor clients.
