AsylumConnect at the United Nations!

This past week, as the winner of the Millennium Campus Conference’s (MCC15) Millennium Peace Prize, Co-founder Katie launched a global campaign at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. She presented the "#AsylumConnect Campaign: In Pursuit of Happiness, Freedom, and Safety" to a panel of mentors with expertise in global development as well as to over 450 student leaders from 50 countries around the world.
