Get Involved

If you are concerned about justice, mercy, and LGBT rights, there is no better time for you to join us! The LGBT Asylum Support Task Force relies on the generous donations of its volunteers and supporters to help asylum seekers. It takes approximately $850 per month to provide the basic necessities of shelter, food, and support for each asylum seeker. Your contributions make a real difference in the life of an asylum seeker. Today, your help is more crucial than ever. Please join us today in helping LGBT asylum seekers find safety and security in the United States. Below are just a few ways you can make a difference.
