WOMEN, CHILDREN AND IMMIGRATION

We have seen that women and children are the most affected by raids. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the majority of immigrant women in detention are asylum seekers fleeing persecution or are victims of some other form of violence. (Briefing Paper to United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Migrants, From National Immigrant Justice Center, Date: April 16, 2007, Re: The Situation of Immigrant Women Detained in the United States).

Be more prepared when a raid happens in your community! Raids cause chaos and confusion for everyone- workers, employers, families and community members.

Please find here a compilation of materials, letters and articles from organizations across the nation. Feel free to use any or all materials, the only request is that you credit the organization that created it when you personalize materials or tailor them for your community.

The National Network to End Violence Against Immigrant Women has not endorsed any of the following materials, but lists them here for reference.
