In Search of Safety: LGBTQ Refugee Protection and HIAS

RSVP Here: https://hias.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_9P73YqTyTVeAJBvPXhAqpA

In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, please join HIAS to recognize the resilience and strength of LGBTQ refugees. All around the world, LGBTQ people face persecution, violence and harassment. With few protections at home, many flee to seek safety in other countries with no guarantee they will find it.

The speakers will discuss the unique needs and vulnerabilities of this population, and how HIAS and our U.S. and international partners have stepped up to advocate for the human rights of our LGBTQ clients and provide lifesaving support.

With Heidi Lehmann, Senior Director of Gender and GBV Programs at HIAS and Blythe Raphael, Director of Refugee Services at Jewish Family and Community Services East Bay
