Mission

 

To advance the rights of immigrant survivors.

 

VIDAs mainly represents immigrant survivors of violent crimes, particularly domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, and trafficking in persons (modern-day slavery/forced labor)

 

Vision:

VIDA envisions an end to the cycle of violence or exploitation; where survivors are able to exercise their rights to be safe, recover, obtain stability; and use their voice to strengthen the movement against violence; and where they encounter effective systems helping them in this process.
