User Story of the Week – Meet Evan
“Evan” is a current college student from Uganda. During their time in college, Evan “came out” as non-binary. Evan now fears returning to Uganda after graduation and begins investigating their options to stay in America. They are referred to AsylumConnect by their school’s LGBTQ+ student club. Evan is relieved to hear of AsylumConnect and immediately feels a sense of validation and hope. Evan uses AsylumConnect’s free resource app to connect with a pro bono attorney with experience in LGBTQ+ asylum to discuss their legal options. Evan also uses AsylumConnect to quickly find LGBTQ-affirming medical and mental health care, as well as to line up short-term housing for after graduation.
