May 12: Webcast - Working with Immigrants: The Intersection of Basic Immigration, Housing, and Domestic Violence Issues in California

You should attend this training if you would like to provide pro bono services to immigrant clients in the areas of housing, immigration, or domestic violence or you would like to improve your representation of immigrant clients generally. Many immigrant clients require assistance with a constellation of related yet distinct issues. This day-long program attempts to address these particular areas of overlap. Experienced practitioners in the areas of immigration, family law, and housing will share their expertise by providing insight into cultural issues that arise when working with immigrant clients, how these areas of law overlap to provide special protections and remedies to immigrants and domestic violence survivors, and how immigration status impacts eligibility for federally subsidized housing.
What You Will Learn

  • Cultural competency issues to be aware of when working with immigrant clients generally and specific issues that arise in housing and domestic violence cases
  • What is domestic violence and how does it impact immigrant and LGBT communities
  • How immigration status affects eligibility for federally subsidized housing
  • Fair Housing laws that protect immigrants and domestic violence survivors
  • Special housing protections for domestic violence survivors in the Violence Against Women Act and other California laws
  • What family law issues are implicated when working with immigrant survivors of domestic violence
  • How to get your client legal immigration status based on domestic violence

Who Should Attend
Legal aid and private practitioners who work with immigrant clients or who would like to provide pro bono services to immigrant clients in the areas of immigration, housing, or domestic violence would benefit from attending this program.
