Acerca de

AsylumConnect is a tech nonprofit providing the first ever digital platform for LGBTQ+ asylum.

From leaving their dangerous home country to resettlement, easily identifying and connecting with legitimate and LGBTQ-affirming lawyers and other direct service providers is often a matter of life-or-death for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers. Launched in 2016, the “AsylumConnect Catalog” is the first and only resource website and mobile app for LGBTQ+ asylum. LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and other LGBTQ+ people in need (such as undocumented LGBTQ+ immigrants and homeless or isolated LGBTQ+ youth) can use the AsylumConnect Catalog as a free digital one-stop-shop referral site to meet their needs in all aspects of their lives, including where it is safe to go for help with: housing, legal, food, medical, mental health, community support, translation, education and employment, and more. Lawyers and other direct service providers also use AsylumConnect to gather verified resource referrals for their LGBTQ+ clients. AsylumConnect’s free website and app can currently connect users with verified LGBTQ-and immigrant-friendly services in 25 states in the United States, Canada (as of April 2019), and Mexico (in response to the “Remain in Mexico” U.S. asylum policy). 

Since 2016, AsylumConnect’s free app has connected over 11,000 unique users to verified LGBTQ-and immigrant-friendly services in the U.S. Financial and in-kind supporters include: Roddenberry Foundation, U.S. Committee for Refugees & Immigrants (USCRI), Clinton Foundation, Urban Justice Center (UJC), Brooklyn Community Foundation Immigrant Rights Fund, Calamus Foundation, and others.
