About Us

We use technology to connect LGBTQ asylum seekers with verified safe services and support.

AsylumConnect is a tech nonprofit providing the first ever digital platform for LGBTQ asylum.

AsylumConnect is a member of the Social Justice Accelerator’s 2019 cohort at the Urban Justice Center. Launched in 2016, AsylumConnect’s flagship product (theĀ AsylumConnect catalog) is the first and only resource website and app for LGBTQ asylum. When AsylumConnect reaches scale, there should never be a time when someone does not know where it is safe to go for help due to their LGBTQ identity or immigration status.

Who we help


The AsylumConnect catalog can currently connect you with verified LGBTQ- and immigrant-friendly services in the United States, Canada and Mexico
