Serving Migrant Communities

Challenges to Reporting and Accessing Services

Challenges to reporting for migrant workers include cultural, linguistic, and geographical isolation; lack of knowledge about services; lack of culturally competent services; lack of knowledge about legal rights and legal service providers; and general fears of law enforcement. Workers who are sexually victimized may also fear retaliation, loss of employment, deportation, or being blacklisted when they seek employment elsewhere.
