Join Us for a Special Lunch and Learn on Protecting Refugees and Asylum Seekers During the Biden Administration

We are delighted to be joined by staff members from two partner organizations who will share stories and reflections from the front lines of the U.S-Mexico border and help us understand the policy opportunities and challenges in Washington, D.C.

Guerline Jozef from Haitian Bridge Alliance will take us behind the scenes of the “border crisis” and deepen our understanding what is really happening at the border. Elizabeth Foydel from International Refugee Assistance Project will then provide an update on how U.S. policy is shaping to protect refugees and asylum seekers during the Biden administration and the hurdles ahead.

Guerline Jozef is the president of Haitian Bridge Alliance, a grassroots community organization that advocates for fair and humane immigration policies and provides migrants and immigrants with humanitarian, legal, and social services, with a particular focus on Black migrants, the Haitian community, women and girls, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and survivors of torture and other human rights abuses. HBA works to elevate the issues unique to Black migrants and build solidarity and collective movement toward policy change.

Elizabeth Foydel is the Deputy Policy Director at International Refugee Assistance Project, an organization that provides legal advocacy for refugees and displaced people in need of a safe place to call home. IRAP works with clients to identify and navigate pathways to safety through free direct legal representation, systemic advocacy, and litigation.
