WHAT ASAP MEMBERSHIP MEANS
The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) is a membership organization of the largest community of asylum seekers in U.S. history. ASAP believes that asylum seekers can make great change by standing together. “I am so glad and proud to be a member of ASAP,” one member shared. “One of the best sentences I have read from ASAP is ‘you are not alone.’ Really, I have this feeling now.”
If you are an asylum seeker who is 18 years old or older, becoming an ASAP member provides you with opportunities to: (1) access critical resources about the asylum process, (2) ask questions to expert immigration attorneys and connect with a community of asylum seekers, and (3) work with other ASAP members to improve the asylum system.
If you are 14 to 17 years old, you will receive an ASAP membership card and begin to receive more benefits when you turn 18.
You can read more about ASAP’s membership benefits here. ASAP membership is completely free, and there is no fee required to submit ASAP’s membership application or to maintain your ASAP membership.
