The San Francisco Bay Area non-profit organization, exclusively dedicated to providing pro-bono legal representation for LGBT immigrants who are fleeing persecution and seeking asylum in the United States.
Our Client Sim:
"The LGBT Asylum Project is the most important thing you can do for any LGBT person in the world. I broke down in front of the officer when he told me I’ve been approved. I feel like crying now too. This is the most important thing you can do for anybody coming to the USA seeking refuge for their lives and they offer free legal services. I was doing well in Nigeria but I lost my money, I was abducted, beaten and my money was stolen. There was no way I could have afforded a lawyer for my asylum in the United States. The importance of such offer cannot be emphasized. This is the first time I slept properly, my blood pressure was going on so high and I started sleeping well after getting my asylum approved."
The LGBT Asylum Project was founded by immigration attorneys Okan Sengun and Brooke Westling, who identified a critical need for high-quality pro-bono representation among vulnerable immigrant populations escaping violence and persecution in their home countries.
