Tahirih Pro Bono: Afghan Asylum Training
Please join us on November 9, 2021, to learn about the legal limbo facing arriving Afghan refugees and how you can help. After providing a real-time snapshot of the legal context, we will review the law of asylum with a special focus on cases involving gender-based persecution. The training will be presented by Tahirih Justice Center supervising attorney Sasha Bershad and CEO Archi Pyati.
Tahirih is national non-profit providing free legal and social services to immigrants fleeing gender-based violence. In September, Tahirih launched a national helpline for arriving Afghan refugees and has since been providing support, information, referrals, and advocacy. This training will give you the tools and understanding to be a part of this response.
