In recent weeks, ASAP has been deeply grateful for the major outpouring of support. Thousands have donated, joined our mailing list, or signed up to volunteer.
The Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) was proud to be recognized by dozens of media sources like People Magazine, Slate, and The Today Show for our work defending asylum seekers across the country. (See below for additional mentions.)
Hillary Clinton, Cory Booker, and other prominent individuals called on the nation to support our work.
And a number of local businesses answered the call. For example, Sprudge, a coffee news blog, organized ASAP fundraisers at more than 100 coffee shops across the world, receiving significant local coverage: Chicago Tribune, Eater Austin, Eater Dallas, Easter Houston, Eater Portland, and Grub Street. (See map for participating stores.)
