 Immigration Options

 

A new video presentation by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and other friends of WSCADV walks you through the different legal remedies that undocumented survivors have based on their domestic violence situations.  Lessons include practical tools and exercises that will help you support clients through their immigration process.  Create a user name and password for our new distance learning center to get set up, then enroll in "Immigration Options".
