June 22 at 2:00 P.M. PDT (webinar): Welcome for All: Supporting LGBTQ Refugees at Home and Abroad.
Even as we celebrate hard-fought wins for LGBTQ rights here in the U.S., countless refugees and asylum seekers continue to flee their homes to escape persecution on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Join HIAS and the City of West Hollywood to discuss the unique needs and vulnerabilities of this population and how HIAS and our partners have stepped up to advocate for their human rights and provide lifesaving support. Learn how we can work to help LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers around the globe and right here at home. Register here.
