Battered Immigrant Women Project

This project is a contract with the Arizona Governor's Office to work with
communities on the Border to develop task forces designed to address the
needs of battered immigrant women. The specific role of MEZCOPH is to use a
participatory framework to provide technical assistance to project partners
in seven Southern Arizona counties. Activities have included implementation
of a needs assessment with community providers, technical assistance to
community coordinators in the development of task forces, and interviews with
battered immigrant women who have self petitioned through the Violence
Against Women Act. In the past year, we completed an online interactive tool
on developing a community protocol to help immigrant women apply for VAWA and
we have submitted the product to peer review on CCPH CES-4 Health.
