Asylum seekers in the US present with needs that many Social Work agencies have attempted to address. However, the LGBTQ population has a specific set of their own needs that many organizations and social workers are not educated on. Temitope Oke, MSW, will help us learn more about how to meet clients where they are: at the intersection of these populations.
