As a survivor of domestic violence, I know what it's like to feel alone and feel trapped, and feel like you haven't any options. I tried to find ways to appease him, to make him hate me less, to make him look at me without disgust. I tried to find "solutions" to remedy my already violent situation, when, really, the only real solution was to leave.
Imagine if leaving wasn't an option because of your immigrant status? Would it serve you right, then, to be subject to violence and abuse because you are not a citizen of this country? Would it serve children any right to be subject to violence and abuse because they are not citizens of this country?
Put your politics aside and think purely as a human being. If you saw someone in desperate need and had the means to help that person, would you?
That's what HRI of North Texas has been doing since 1999. The Human Rights Initiative of North Texas provides free legal support to refugees and immigrants who have suffered human rights abuses, advocates for justice, and promotes international human rights. They believe in the basic human rights of all people, regardless of any kind of status.
Please help me by donating to this cause. $5, $10, $25 - anything will help. Your generosity will help save women, children, and men from human rights abuses.
Thank you for all of your support!
