This toolkit provides the important steps and guidelines for developing a coordinated community response to immigrant victims of domestic or sexual violence, and particularly those eligibile for immigration relief and associated health and human services under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The Southern Arizona Battered Immigrant Women Project designed this toolkit within the context of rural communities in Southern Arizona, for adaptation in rural communities, border communities, and other communities serving immigrant survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
This toolkit was developed, and is maintained by The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health in collaboration and partnership with the Southern Arizona Battered Immigrant Women Task Force Coordinators. You may contact the Task Force Coordinators directly, through their contact information on the bottom of the main project page, or through theirLocal BIW Task Force pages, on the right hand side of this page.
