As Co-Founder and President of AsylumConnect, I can attest to asylum seekers’ and refugees’ resilience and heroism. They deserve to be in this country. They are an invaluable asset to the U.S. - not a danger.
Trump’s recently signed executive order for “extreme vetting” of refugees flies in the face of everything our nation stands for. It jeopardizes the lives of innocent human beings. This ban is a disaster for our nation, for the global community, and for justice. Many refugees don't have months.
In November 2016, AsylumConnect published: The Seattle Pilot of the AsylumConnect Catalog: A Case Study.” This report provides a detailed breakdown of the Seattle pilot, what's next, and the long-term vision for the AsylumConnect catalog.
AsylumConnect received recognition at this year's Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), including a special shoutout from Chelsea Clinton and a screening of a video about AsylumConnect during a morning plenary session.
On March 1st, Katie (AsylumConnect Co-founder/Co-director) had the opportunity to share AsylumConnect with approximately 200 members of the New York University (NYU) community as part of the UN Global Initiative Program at NYU.
