Your support makes a difference
The asylum crisis is not new. For years it was ignored. RIF was established a decade ago to precisely deal with the lack of orientation and resources for asylum seekers in NYC. This vacuum is mostly occupied by fraudulent and smugglers of all kind.
Today, as asylum is criminalized, RIF is stepping up its efforts to ensure that their basic rights are respected.
More than ever, having a good asylum roadmap is fundamental for an endangered individual fleeing persecution. RIF serves as a welcoming platform for those seeking refuge in our city. Through legal orientation, resource sharing, and community-building, we help asylum-seekers get back on their feet and on the road towards safety.
