A.  General Introduction to the Resources:

The resources materials on this webpage are intended for New Mexico Judges and Court Personnel and address the intersection of domestic violence and immigration.  Immigrant DV victims face unique barriers and challenges accessing state the courts and there are unique remedies and protections for immigrant victims of domestic violence.

The JEC programs and resources produced under the Grant include production of 7 one hour-long webinars, a two day in-person conference, and resource materials produced pursuant to the Grant, including this webpage.

C. Website Resources:

The resources on this website come from a variety of sources, including from the JEC produced webcasts, video and materials from the in-person conference, resources developed by JEC, resources adapted from existing materials from other entities, and resource materials created by other entities.
