Global LGBT Equality: Asylum Seekers Speak Out

Permanent Link | Posted by The DC Center on May 11, 2013 11:35 PM


globalequality.jpg Please join the DC Center's newest initiative - Center Global - for a frank discussion on the challenges facing LGBTI asylum seekers in the United States. Many of these individuals seek refugee and protection in the U.S. from being persecuted, threatened, and in some cases jailed and tortured in their countries of origin.

This event takes place Thursday May 30th at 7:00 PM. Location TBA.

Asylees, current asylum seekers and legal experts will talk about the difficult process LGBTI asylum seekers face and the challenges they experience once they arrive in the United States. Come find out what our community can do to help LGBTI asylum seekers in the DC Metro area.
