CILA is excited to announce that our summer legal intern, Queen Thomas, recently created a new resource for advocates working on LGBTQIA+ asylum cases. This compilation of country conditions for seven countries was prepared after great interest from and participation in our June 17 webinar training: Best Practices for Serving LGBTQIA+ Unaccompanied Youth.
The Country Conditions Compilation is a 76-page resource, divided by country, that includes relevant quotes from articles and reports. The resource also identifies some local organizations that help and support LGBTQIA+ individuals in those countries. This resource is intended to be a helpful starting point for advocates’ research on the issues facing their LGBTQIA+ clients in their home countries.
