Non-citizen survivors of sexual assault and other crimes face an additional set of barriers that make it difficult to reach out for help. This webinar will explain the intention behind the creation of the U Visa and detail the requirements of an application for immigration relief through the U Visa program. We will discuss how often times non-citizen victims of crime including domestic violence and sexual assault, can be eligible for a U visa. Presenters will provide strategies for advocates to improve survivors' access to the U visa by enhancing safety and security while minimizing barriers, fears, and misconceptions.
