FEATURED CORPORATE & OTHER SUPPORTERS

Kupanda Capital is proud to be a corporate supporter of InReach. Leveraging data and technology for social good is at the core of what we do, so InReach's innovative solution to increase access to safe resources for LGBTQ+ people facing persecution and discrimination deeply resonated with our team. We've been impressed by the clear impact InReach has made to-date and are excited to continue to support the organization in its growth.

INREACH.ORG | @WEAREINREACH
-QUEEN CHINYERE QUINN Founding Partner,

Jamie co-founded AsylumConnect (now InReach) during his senior year at the University of Pennsylvania. At Penn, he met fellow student Sy. Sy shared his personal experience struggling to find safe resources during his U.S. asylum process. Despite access to technology, upon arrival in the United States Sy struggled as a gay immigrant to find reliable data on where it was safe to go for help to meet his basic needs, from finding legitimate pro bono legal representation for his LGBTQ+ asylum claim to affirming health care, mental health support, housing, and educational opportunities. As a trans man who grew up in a conservative environment, the feeling of not being able to live authentically and lacking easily accessible information on how to find affirming support deeply resonated with Jamie.

So, during their senior year, Sy and Jamie co-founded AsylumConnect, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization started as the world's first technology platform for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers, to fill the critical resource information gap facing the diverse LGBTQ+ community. The organization is founded on the belief that every LGBTQ+ person deserves the safety and freedom to live authentically. Jamie has led the organization since.

In May 2022, AsylumConnect officially became InReach. Our mission is to ensure safe help is InReach for all members of the LGBTQ+ community. Since launching its App in 2016, the organization has seen the platform be used by a wide variety of LGBTQ+ people, in addition to those seeking asylum. The organization rebranded to InReach to better communicate and reflect the value of its free technology to a broader LGBTQ+ user base.

Today, InReach has services for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers, refugees and other immigrants, LGBTQ+ BIPOC communities, the transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) community, LGBTQ+ youth and their caregivers, and more LGBTQ+ communities.

INNOVATION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

InReach is the most technologically advanced, verified resource platform designed for the intersectional LGBTQ+ community. Current features include: the ability to leave public ratings and reviews on every service provider’s InReach profile page, view the App in native English or Spanish (with 100+ languages via Google Translate), save and share resources via print or email, filter out service providers that require specific documentation to access services, and search across 14 different categories of verified support (ranging from legal help to meal assistance to housing to abortion care to education and employment to mental health care).

FOCUS ON PRIVACY AND USER SAFETY

Online anonymity can be a life-or-death issue for LGBTQ+ people. That's why InReach is designed to protect users' safety and confidentiality online. InReach does not require any personally identifiable information to use its free App.

FOCUS ON INTERSECTIONALITY

Every LGBTQ+ person deserves the safety and freedom to live authentically. Achieving LGBTQ+ equality requires transgender justice, racial justice, refugee justice, reproductive justice, language justice, and more. InReach’s resource vetting process and front-end product UI/UX design prioritize these values.

THE MOST RIGOROUS RESOURCE VETTING PROCESS TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF THE DIVERSE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY

Every service provider listed on InReach is vetted by trained volunteers to be welcoming spaces for LGBTQ+ people facing discrimination and persecution. Reverifications by our trained volunteers are required at least once every 6 months for every provider listed on InReach.
