How are Trump Administration policies affecting immigrants who face sexual violence?

Welcome to the #ImmigrantSurvivors video series. These videos explain how eight specific government policies, along with broad, nondiscretionary mass deportation goals, are harming victims of sexual violence and abuse. Expanding the federal agencies’ targets for immigration enforcement has served to silence immigrant women and children fleeing violence while increasing their fears about the consequences of speaking out.

Below you can:

  • WATCH and SHARE the videos. Use the hashtags #MeToo and #ImmigrantSurvivors when you share.
  • TELL your STORY, or the story of someone you know.
  • JOIN the campaign to CHANGE these policies.

Videos will be released on Tuesdays and Thursdays over the next few weeks.
