Client Stories

Our clients are kind, brave, and resilient individuals fleeing violence and abuse because of who they are or whom they love. They come from around the world to the United States seeking a safe place to call home. Here are a few of their stories.

    Asylum & Detention Stories

    Our clients come to the U.S. from every region of the world seeking safe haven from persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or HIV-status. The road to asylum can take years, and some are detained in dangerous conditions as they pursue their claims. Here are a few of their stories.

    Impact Litigation Family Stories

    The State Department treats children born abroad to married U.S. citizens as born “out of wedlock,” denying them U.S. citizenship. We currently represent four families who are leading the fight to change this discriminatory, unconstitutional policy⁠—not only for themselves but for all LGBTQ families.
