AIS is working to increase scholarship on the unique experiences of immigrant survivors. Current research regarding this population comes from advocates and attorneys, not the survivors themselves. AIS is addressing this gap to make survivors’ voices heard. In 2023, AIS launched a research study in collaboration with Samantha Chapa, a PhD candidate at the University of Houston. The study explores immigrant survivors’ trauma experiences and their interactions with the criminal justice system, with the goal of increasing awareness and understanding of their distinct perspectives.
