Many immigrants are involved in violent relationships or have been trafficked against their will to the United States. Most immigrants are afraid to leave these relationships or report the perpetrators to law enforcement because they do not have proper immigration status. Fortunately for them there are laws to protect them and help them gain status so they no longer need to be afraid. The Georgia Asylum & Immigration Network (GAIN) works closely with ICE Homeland Security Investigations, Raksha, and Tapestri to represent and assist these victims of violence. Through this training you will learn the basics of pertinent immigration law and how to work with a social service organizations and the government to effectively and compassionately represent these clients pro bono.
