In February, FAITH’s Executive Director, Ambreen Ahmed was one of the presenters at the National Alliance webinar about the effects of the immigration EO on domestic violence victims in the Muslim community, and how advocates can better serve them at this time. The National Alliance to End Domestic Abuse consists of a diverse group of advocates, mental health professionals, lawyers, researchers, and others from the DV community.
The webinar: “The administration’s recent executive actions on immigration has caused confusion and fear among immigrant communities nationwide. Given that abusers often use the threat of immigration enforcement as a way to maintain power and control in the relationship, the recent executive actions may make survivors even more afraid to seek help.
The webinar helps:
-Understand the provision of the executive orders which are likely to directly impact survivors
-Identify key ways to protect your clients and engage in community advocacy to protect immigrant survivors.
-Incorporate enhanced family safety planning as well as connecting to reliable know your rights materials
This week, a group of 50 Muslim and Jewish women came together to learn how we can address domestic violence in our respective communities and how we can collaborate to raise awareness. Thanks to the coordinators FAITH Social Services, Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse (JCADA) and JCRC of Greater Washington for a thoughtful program. To learn how you can be a trained volunteer to help advocate for domestic violence victims please email at [email protected].
