Join The Advocates Staff Attorney Sarah Brenes and other panelists including Professor Steven Meili of the University of Minnesota School of Law to discuss differences in asylum and refugee processing in the United States and abroad.

There are currently nearly 20 million people worldwide who have been recognized as refugees, and who have sought protection in neighboring countries and in countries throughout the world. Over the last three decades, more than 95,000 refugees have come to Minnesota. Some refugees are resettled in, while others must seek asylum after they enter the United States. Over the last decade The Advocates for Human Rights and its team of pro bono volunteers have assisted hundreds of asylum seekers.
