We use technology to facilitate the safe navigation of people fleeing persecution due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

“If the AsylumConnect Catalog had existed when I was applying for asylum it would had made my life much easier. AsylumConnect’s work truly saves lives. I was homeless for about three years because I could not find services for undocumented lesbians, work, or anyone who could explain to me how the immigration process work[ed] and what my options were.”
