    Achieving Work Authorization for Immigrant Survivors of Trauma

    Many immigrants with pending visa petitions are limited in their ability to provide for themselves and contribute to their communities because they lack legal work permits. Due to recent policy changes, however, it is now possible for our clients to obtain work authorization while their visa applications are still pending. With grant funds, we will file for legal work authorization and conduct educational workshops on rights and responsibilities associated with lawful employment status for over 500 immigrant survivors of trauma in L.A. County.
