Creating Culturally Responsive, Trauma Informed Legal Advocacy

This will be a two-part series involving a recorded session on the Impact of Physical and Sexual Violence, followed by a live virtual training on Trauma Informed Legal Advocacy. The video is a 40-minute recording exploring how violence becomes trauma and how that trauma can then impact the system and other legal proceedings. The live virtual session will explore how the trauma of oppression further complicates the trauma from violence and is what lawyers and advocates can do in their work with a survivor of sexual violence to ensure their most effective work together.

NCCASA is excited to be partnering with Cheryl Chew from Justice Matters and Saira Estrada from NC Victim Assistance Network to present a webinar on Supporting Immigrant Survivors. During this 90- minute webinar JusticeMatters will cover various immigration legal options for immigrant victims of crime, benefits of obtaining immigration legal relief, and rights of individuals with pending applications. Saira from NCVAN will focus on advocating for immigrant survivors with community partners, potential community resources, and how to ensure rape crisis center services feel accessible to immigrant survivors. We look forward to seeing you there and will have time for questions.
