ASAP brings legal aid services to regions where there are few or no legal aid lawyers, including border detention facilities and rural communities across the United States.
Conchita Cruz, Swapna Reddy, Dorothy Tegeler and Liz Willis co-founded the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP) during their time as students at the Yale Law School.
With the help of many dedicated volunteers, ASAP has prevented the deportation of hundreds of Central American refugees. Now we are ready to scale our work to provide thousands of families with the tools they need to navigate the U.S. immigration system and secure refugee status.
