Event Details

This month, join Human Rights First for a pivotal webinar briefing titled “The State of U.S. Asylum:  Briefing on recent policy obstacles,” featuring insights from our newest discussions on asylum policies in the United States.

Our featured speakers, Eleanor Acer, Senior Director for Refugee Protection, and Robyn Barnard, Senior Director for Refugee Advocacy, will guide you through the latest developments and their implications.

When: March 26, 2024, 1:00 PM – 1:30 PM EDT
Where: Live on Zoom (with social media coverage)

This briefing aims to unpack the critical updates in asylum policy, exploring the rationale behind these changes, their impact on asylum seekers, and the advocacy strategies employed to promote a more humane approach to immigration. Through comprehensive analysis and firsthand findings, including recent research from the U.S.-Mexico border, our speakers will discuss proposed reforms and legislative challenges currently facing the asylum system.

Our webinar will highlight the pressing need for policy changes that respect human rights and provide effective, humane asylum procedures. With the introduction of controversial legislative measures, such as the “Defending Borders, Defending Democracies Act,” the dialogue will also stress the importance of public advocacy in opposing policies that undermine asylum protections and violate refugee law.

Engage in this crucial conversation to gain a deeper understanding of the current state of U.S. asylum policies, the ongoing advocacy efforts to defend and improve the asylum system, and how you can contribute to supporting refugees and asylum seekers.

Stand in solidarity with those advocating for fair and humane immigration policies. Your involvement is key to influencing positive change and ensuring the protection of human dignity and international law.
