Membership Responsibilities

Network members must be willing to affirm the right of each person to live without fear or the threat of violence, including immigrant women and children. Members respond to requests for information and action alerts and inform the Network about problems immigrant survivors encounter in your communities (including but not limited to problems encountered in family courts, with benefits providers, in the justice system and accessing immigration relief). Members help develop and implement efforts to remedy problems. If you participate in a local network of service providers, a local domestic violence coordinating council, or local immigrant rights network, you are encouraged to communicate to your network what you learn about the legal rights and services provided to immigrant survivors and to urge others to provide services to immigrant victims to participate in Network sponsored conferences and trainings and to join the National Network.
