Airbnb and the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) support systemic change and legal pathways to safety for refugees, displaced persons, and other vulnerable individuals affected by the US Travel Ban.
IRAP is on the front lines of the fight against the discriminatory travel ban, working around the clock to fight for legal solutions and protect the rights of thousands of affected individuals worldwide. Donate to IRAP today and Airbnb will match donations up to a total of $150,000 USD through September 30, 2018. Your gift will help provide critical legal assistance to individuals affected by the travel ban, with the goal of helping them move freely to reach safety.
About International Refugee Assistance Project: IRAP is a project of the Urban Justice Center. IRAP organizes law students and lawyers to develop and enforce a set of legal and human rights for refugees and displaced persons. Mobilizing direct legal aid, litigation, and systemic advocacy, IRAP serves the world’s most persecuted individuals and empowers the next generation of human rights leaders.
IRAP mobilized an emergency taskforce of legal advocates and volunteers at airports across the United States to defend the rights of incoming refugees and immigrants in the wake of the January 27, 2017 Executive Order. Since then, IRAP has been leading the fight in the courts and the press to protect the legal and human rights of displaced persons around the globe. For more information, visit refugeerights.org.
