Immigrant women engagement in the legal system

Battered Women's Support Services (BWSS) Immigrant Women Engagement in the Legal System project has released their first report, Engaging Immigrant Women In The Legal System-Community Engagement Report. The BWSS project is engaged with immigrant women who have experienced violence in their intimate relationships, who may be bisexual or lesbian, who are dealing with the legal system and who may have to self represent in court. The project hopes to review and analyze current legal issues through a women-centered, ethnic/cultural/language lens and to create and develop legal resources from that lens to increase the accessibility of the legal systems they are coming into contact with.
