Please join me for a live event and fund raiser at Immigrant Food on September 9, 2021 at 6:00 PM in Washington, DC. The event is sponsored by Ayuda, a DC-area non-profit that assists immigrants and asylum seekers. Aside from yours truly, speakers will include Immigration Judge (retired) Lisa Dornell, Ayuda Legal Director Laurie Ball Cooper, and torture survivor and advocate Tensay Kalile.

We will discuss the state of the U.S. asylum system, including the Asylum Office and the Immigration Court, and how the Biden Administration can improve the asylum process. Of course, we will also discuss my new book, The Asylumist: How to Seek Asylum in the United States and Keep Your Sanity. Given that this is a two-hour event, I am confident we will be able to solve most of the problems with the U.S. asylum system - so you won't want to miss it!

Proceeds from food and book sales will benefit Ayuda. In additional, all royalties from the sale of my book online from today through September 15 will benefit Ayuda - so now is a great time to buy the book and benefit a very worthy organization. You can buy the book here. Below is more information about the event and the panelists (and by the way, the even will be held out doors, socially distanced). You can sign up to attend or donate here.

Seeking asylum in the United States can be a long, difficult, and confusing process. Even if you have a lawyer to represent you, navigating the asylum system can be a challenge.

Asylum law expert Jason Dzubow has helped hundreds of people obtain protection in the United States. Since 2010, he has been writing about asylum issues and answering questions on his blog The Asylumist. In his new book, The Asylumist: How to Seek Asylum in the United States and Keep Your Sanity, Mr. Dzubow has collected his most helpful and popular blog posts, updated them, and sorted them by topic.

Join us on Thursday, September 9 at Immigrant Food as we discuss this important topic and Jason's new book, The Asylumist.

Author, Jason Duzbow will be joined by other experts in the field as well as a torture survivor, Tensay, who will share his personal journey in seeking asylum.
