    Join DOVE, Inc. (Domestic Violence Ended, Inc.) for a training on affirmative immigration relief available to immigrant survivors of domestic violence.  The training is open to attorneys interested in taking on pro bono cases, legal services attorneys and accredited representatives, and will cover best practices when working with survivors of trauma and domestic violence as well as the most common forms of immigration relief including: 

    •    U visas for victims of serious crimes;
    •    VAWA Self-Petitions for abused spouses of US citizens and green card holders;
    •    Removal of Conditions for abused spouses and children who have obtained conditional residency; and
    •     Special Immigrant Juvenile Status for abused, neglected, and abandoned youth.

    The training will also provide an overview of the life of a case and allow plenty of time for questions. DOVE’s immigration program provides representation to survivors of domestic violence in affirmative immigration applications to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and is seeking to expand representation by providing training and in-depth mentorship to pro bono attorneys able to take on a case. The DOVE Immigration Attorney will follow up with those interested in taking a case from DOVE following the training for case placement.

    RSVP is required for this training and you will need to show photo ID to access the building.

    Please RSVP by December 2.

    KEYNOTE SPEAKER:  

    Richie Reseda. Freed from prison in July, 2018, Richie Reseda is a feminist ally, community organizer, recording artist, and founder of the social-impact record label, Question Culture. The anti-patriarchy organization he started while incarcerated, Success Stories, was chronicled in the CNN documentary "The Feminist on Cell Block Y". He leads conversations about patriarchy and prison abolition all over the country. He changes California prison policy with Initiate Justice, an organization he co-founded in prison.

    ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM:

    Sexual assault and domestic violence are rooted in systems that perpetuate violence against women and/or gender-based violence. This year's symposium will focus on addressing these systems - Patriarchy. A term rarely heard in mainstream conversations, patriarchy is a systemic power structure that infiltrates governments, societies, schools, workplaces, and families and encourages male leadership and power over others. As a result, men - especially cis-gender men - are both perceived and treated as though they are better than, are more respected than, and hold more privileges than women and non-binary people.

    Through an interactive keynote and affinity discussion groups, we will engage in conversations and creative thinking around how we can work collectively to identify ways to challenge patriarchy and move us closer to ending sexual assault and domestic violence.

    You don't want to miss it.

    • Friday, December 13, 2019
    • 8:45 AM - 3:30 PM
    • Braintree Village 2 McCusker Drive Braintree, Massachusetts

    The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Reauthorization Act of 2013 extended protections against housing discrimination or eviction due to domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to tenants in federally assisted housing. In 2016, HUD issued the final rule in relation to the VAWA reauthorization which further outlined the responsibilities of housing providers. Additionally, in 2013 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed “An Act Relative to Housing Rights for Victims of Domestic Violence, Rape, Sexual Assault and Stalking” which provides housing protections to all tenants in the Commonwealth.

    This full day training offered by MassHousing that provides a comprehensive overview of the following:

    • Outline the differences between the protections provided by VAWA and those provided by the state law and discuss documentation requirements and other practical issues. Protections afforded to victims under fair housing laws will also be discussed.
    • Why domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking is relevant to housing and housing operations
    • The Legal Framework and Housing Provider’s Obligations Throughout The Occupancy Cycle (Tenant Selection, Residency, Eviction)
    • Practical approaches/ideas to situations that arise throughout the occupancy cycle

    The training looks at both federal and state law and outlines the housing protections for survivors of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking as well as the responsibilities of housing providers. While the content was largely designed for housing providers, it is also a great resource for service providers, particularly those who engage in housing stabilization or advocacy for survivors.
