Under the current hostile administration, our ability to point queer asylum seekers towards safe, LGBTQ-friendly resources is more important than ever. We've launched a crowdfunding campaign to take our resource catalog nationwide and we need your help!
AsylumConnect (www.asylumconnect.org), a fiscally sponsored nonprofit helping LGBTQ asylum seekers identify and access verified human needs resources, and One Degree (www.1degree.org), a technology-driven nonprofit that helps low-income families access resources to achieve social and economic mobility, today announced a partnership to build a national version of the AsylumConnect catalog.
