SIGN-ON by 4 pm ET FRI 3/15 - Urge Congress in CIR to Protect Immigrant Women from Violence


From Pat Reuss of National Organization for Women:

Hope your state NOW can sign on to this letter – feel free to forward to your coalition partners who work on VAW and immigration reform.  We will NOT give up on immigrant women survivors.  p

 On Monday, March 18, 2013, at 2 pm ET, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on "How Comprehensive Immigration Reform Should Address the Needs of Women and Families."
A national committee of leading experts on existing protections – and protection gaps – in US laws affecting refugee and immigrant women survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and gender-based persecution, has drafted a statement urging Congress, as they consider immigration reforms, to prioritize the need to protect immigrant women and their families from violence and exploitation.
Please sign-on to the statement to impress on Congress the importance of addressing violence against women in comprehensive immigration reform, and to demonstrate widespread strong support for this priority! We will submit this for the record of the upcoming Senate hearing.
Please see the statement here and attached, and click here to sign on! (Only organizational endorsements are being accepted at this time – thank you!) And please share this widely with your own networks. Sign-ons are due by 4:00 pm ET on Friday, March 15, 2013.
For more information, contact Jeanne Smoot with the Tahirih Justice Center at jeanne@tahirih.org or Cecelia Levin with ASISTA Immigration Assistance at cecelia@asistahelp.org.
