Over the last quarter, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) has shared critical immigration resources with tens of thousands of asylum seekers in the United States. Ranging from how-to videos to informative blog posts, ASAP’s resources are easy to access and viewable from a cell phone. Our resources are created with members’ needs in mind, with the goal of making information about the asylum system more accessible.
“Excellent video,” one viewer commented on one of ASAP’s video resources. “Illustrative, informative and concise, dispelled most of my doubts.”
Here are some highlights from the resources we shared last quarter:
- ASAP’s YouTube videos about navigating the asylum system were viewed over 31,000 times.
- Within just 4 days, over 29,000 members visited our latest monthly update, which includes recent immigration news and other updates for members.
- We texted over 28,000 ASAP members from Burma, Haiti, Syria, and Venezuela about their potential eligibility for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
- Members accessed our guide on how to apply for a work permit over 22,000 times.
- Members viewed updates about CASA v. Mayorkas, ASAP members’ federal lawsuit defending their ability to work, over 18,000 times.
“I liked the video that explains very well how to apply for a work permit,” one ASAP member from Guatemala shared. “Everything was very easy and accessible.”
These resources were created based on the topics that ASAP’s members have said are important to them. And as ASAP’s membership grows, we will continue creating materials based on the topics that matter to ASAP members as they navigate the immigration system and everyday life in the United States.
