Overview

As rights for people living according to their authentic sexual orientation/gender identity are increasing across the globe (e.g. universal marriage equality, employment protection), further understanding of how to work with LGBTIQ people seeking asylum in the United States is crucial for social workers. This workshop will give an overview of LGBTIQ rights around the world and then discuss how social workers can best advocate and build networks to support these cases. Specific case examples from work in the Unitarian Universalist Congregation to the United Nations will be highlighted
 
Learning Goals:
  • Participants will identify the key rights of LGBTIQ people around the world.
  • Participants will gain knowledge on advocacy best practices for LGBTIQ refugees and asylum seekers.
  • Participants will apply practice concepts to their work with LGBTIQ refugees and asylum seekers.
