This document shares some of the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP)’s internal best practices for working with clients and building community at a distance. Since 2015, ASAP has provided remote legal assistance to thousands of asylum seekers in over 40 states and 5 countries. Our staff now work remotely across 7 states. We hope that our experiences will be useful to other organizations and advocates who are now seeking to provide remote legal services in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
