Survivors’ Voices

Survivors have a voice, but it is often not heard, marginalised, ostracised.

When a woman is detained, her voice is still free and escapes from the silently racist walls that will not wait for an answer.

When a woman is forcibly deported, her voice commits to becoming a statement, a protest chant, a song to know that despite the powerlessness, there is indeed power.

These are the voices of women who hold insecure immigration status and were unable to rely on the system to flee violence and abuse.

If you would like to submit a statement, a poem, a song on your experience, please contact: illary@lawrs.org.uk
