The Office of Social Justice presents State of Asylum 2021: How Immigration Policies Oppress Immigrant Communities, on Thursday, March 4, 2021, from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm. 

As a new legislative session is underway, our country faces challenges on the domestic and international humanitarian front. Global refugee resettlement numbers have shrunk in recent years. The COVID-19 global pandemic has exacerbated the underlying vulnerabilities of displaced populations, including women and girls. Asylum seekers, refugees, and internally displaced people (IDPs) often face enormous obstacles in gaining access to life-saving assistance and protection. Additional support and attention are needed for the more than 80 million people displaced globally because of persecution, conflict, and violations of human rights.

Please join The USC Office Of Social Justice, USC Keck Human Rights Clinic, USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health, ACLU of Southern California, Human Rights First, Frontline Wellness, and The Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) as they discuss the current state of asylum and humanitarian support for displaced populations.
