Mission Statement

ORAM--Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration is a California-based non-profit international organization with a mission to advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) refugees. ORAM conducts education and advocacy on behalf of these highly vulnerable refugees. It also provides them with legal counseling and representation as they struggle to find security and a safe haven. We work with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and with community-based groups in the US and abroad to achieve our mission. Goals include integration of these refugees’ concerns into government and NGO agendas as well as substantive policy change. More information is available at www.oraminternational.org.

Description

Founded in 2008, ORAM is the first migration organization focusing exclusively on refugees fleeing sexual and gender-based violence worldwide. A new network spanning national, ethnic, religious, racial and gender divides, ORAM provides clients with free legal representation and conducts advocacy and education on their behalf.

Through the creative marriage of modern technology and legal expertise, ORAM provides clients isolated in countries of transit with free counseling and assistance. ORAM’s advocacy encompasses non-governmental organizations, inter-governmental organizations, governments and community groups. Our educational efforts include lectures, writings and a variety of presentation modes.
