Supporting Immigrant Survivors
January 13, 2021 @ 12:01 pm
Emily McKenzie, Senior Immigration Attorney at Catholic Community Services of North Utah, will discuss the extra level of manipulation and exploitation that immigrant victims of domestic and intimate partner violence often experience simply because of their immigrant status. Many immigrant victims don’t feel able to seek support or report abuse because of their abuser’s manipulation and power and control tactics. Learn more at this educational opportunity provided by Peace House and the Summit County Domestic Violence Coalition. Direct service providers, coalition member’s, community helpers, police and health department personnel and people with Spanish-speaking populations to participate.
