Model - Training

Training and Resources

In an environment that is increasingly hostile to immigrants and their families, it is an ongoing challenge to build awareness among providers and to offer appropriate training so that doors will remain open and referrals effective. While it is urgent that immigrants and victims be informed of their rights and available resources, it is unethical to send them to services that will put them in harm’s way. Victim and legal services are central to training efforts.

Training of all the key sectors depicted in the model is essential for effective coordinated response and requires involvement of representatives from each discipline in identifying training needs, strategies, and formats, and ensuring global training and re-training.


Public Awareness and Training Video: "With Liberty and Justice For All"

The Pima County BIWP Task Force created a training and public awareness video in 2010. This video was produced as a training tool for task force members, organizations and agencies responding to immigrant victims of violence, and to enhance awareness of the legal immigration protections afforded to them under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
