Additional Event Information

October is full of webinar opportunities and we are excited you clicked on this link to learn more about this session. A topic that we receive a lot of questions about is U & T Visas. We felt it was important to offer a webinar to cover the basics of this subject. We are excited to welcome Leslye Orloff, Director with the National Immigrant Women's Advocacy Project (NIWAP) and Shelli Sonnenberg, Community Outreach Officer and Refugee Liaison with the Boise Police Department as our next presenters. We know Leslye and Shelli have a wealth of knowledge to share with us.

What To Expect:
This webinar will provide prosecutors, law enforcement, and victim advocates with information on the U and T visa programs and the important role these programs play in enhancing victim and community safety by holding offenders accountable and increasing victim participation in the criminal justice process. Faculty will discuss the intent and basic requirements for and best practices for handling requests for U visa or T visa certification. How to identify and develop prosecution case strategies in context of immigrant victim and offender dynamics will be discussed as well as how the safety of law enforcement officers, victims, and the community is strengthened when immigrant victims report crime and help with investigations and prosecutions.
