Purpose
  • Other purpose
ASAP was founded in May 2015 as a volunteer effort led by four law school classmates: Conchita Cruz, Swapna Reddy, Dorothy Tegeler, and Liz Willis. The site includes videos and pro se information on immigration court procedure, how to file asylum applications, and more. The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) is known in Spanish as Proyecto de Apoyo para Solicitantes de Asilo (PASA). There are also various resources for asylum seekers who do not have a lawyer. The initiative aspires from asylum seekers to able to use these resources to better understand the process and defend their rights. However, this information does not replace the representation of a competent attorney.
