AsylumConnect Joins Open Letter From LGBTQ+ Organizations Condemning Racism
AsylumConnect has joined over 100 LGBTQ+ organizations in signing an open letter coordinated by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) condemning racism. We unequivocally join the call for action and condemn racism, racist violence and police brutality. #BlackLivesMatter #BlackTransLivesMatter
AsylumConnect is built on a foundation of recognizing the significance of intersectionality and compounded marginalization. Many LGBTQ+ asylum seekers must navigate multiple marginalized identities including LGBTQ+, immigrant and person of color. Opposing discrimination, social injustice, and oppression is at the root of who we are.
At AsylumConnect, our vision is to ensure every LGBTQ+ person knows where it is safe to go for help regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, immigration status, race/ethnicity or income level.
