Co-founded by a gay asylum seeker and lesbian in 2014 at the University of Pennsylvania, AsylumConnect is a tech nonprofit creating the first online resource catalog to help LGBTQ asylum seekers find safe, high-quality resources during the U.S. asylum process. Nonprofits, immigration attorneys, and other providers also use the catalog to gather verified resource referrals for clients.
In November 2017, AsylumConnect partnered with technology-focused nonprofit One Degree on national expansion, and is now accepting suggestions for catalog resources that are available across the U.S. So far, the catalog has helped over 5,000 find safe resources.
AsylumConnect has received recognition and support from the UN, Clinton Foundation, Harvard Social Enterprise Conference, U.S. Committee for Refugees & Immigrants, and others.
