LGBT Refugees and Asylum Law

Start/End Monday, March 11, 2013 12:10 PM EDT -- 01:10 PM EDT
Location Name JG 105

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people face serious threats to their safety and security around the world as a result of persecution, leading many of them to become refugees. Join the Society for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and Outlaws in a discussion with members of the immigration and asylum legal community regarding the challenges faced by LGBT refugees, what we as future lawyers should be aware of in the fields of domestic and international refugee law, and what we can do to help.

Panelists:

  • Aaron C. Morris, Senior Staff Attorney at Immigration Equality
  • Becca Heller, Director of Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project
  • Dale Buscher, Adjunct Associate Professor at SIPA, Senior Director for Programs of the Women's Refugee Commission

Non-pizza lunch (Roti Roll) will be served. Contact: Eduardo Gonzalez, eg2244@columbia.edu
