As a joint effort between the Immigration Law Society and El Centro, the Immigration (VAWA) Clinic helps undocumented immigrants who have left abusive relationships or been victims of serious crimes submit VAWA or U-Visa applications.
Volunteers work directly with clients, including survivors of domestic violence, as survivors of sexual abuse, felonious assault, and attempted murder. Clinic volunteers work in pairs and meet face-to-face with clients to interview them for their applications. Volunteers then draft a VAWA or U-Visa declaration and review it with the client.
