AsylumConnect 2021 Remote Junior Board for Young Professionals
The AsylumConnect Junior Board is a group of young professionals committed to supporting AsylumConnect’s critical work through fundraising, networking and marketing.
In 2020, we launched our inaugural Junior Board in NYC of young professionals from McKinsey, Twitter, UN Women, Google, Mount Sinai Hospital, and more. During 2021, the AsylumConnect Junior Board program will be open to young professionals (ages 21 to 40) located anywhere in the United States. All programming will be virtual, with optional in-person meet-ups throughout the year.
Join a remote nationwide coalition of young professionals passionate about LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights!

Connect LGBTQ+ people with safety.
Tech nonprofit AsylumConnect has built the first and only digital resource platform for the tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ asylum seekers fleeing their homes for safer ground each year. When AsylumConnect reaches scale, all persecuted and marginalized LGBTQ+ people will have access to critical verified support.
It is still illegal to be gay in 70 countries. Every year, thousands of LGBTQ+ people leave everything behind to seek asylum in the U.S.
Launched in 2016, the "AsylumConnect Catalog" is the first ever resource website and mobile app for LGBTQ+ asylum. LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and other LGBTQ+ people in need (such as homeless or isolated LGBTQ+ youth) use the AsylumConnect Catalog as a free digital one-stop-shop to meet their critical needs, including: accessing verified free/low-cost LGBTQ-affirming medical and mental health services. Lawyers and others also use the free app to easily find medical and social service referrals for clients.
