After the chaotic and rushed withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Afghanistan, Operation Allies Welcome evacuated over 84,000 Afghan nationals into the United States. More than 350 resettlement agencies and community partner organizations have resettled these tens of thousands of Afghans into communities across the United States—and they need our help
By some estimates, close to half of resettled Afghans may have to apply for asylum. The Immigration Justice Campaign is partnering with the International Rescue Committee, who has committed to resettling 11,000 individuals, to mobilize pro bono asylum representation for Afghans resettled in three cities: Atlanta, GA; Denver, CO; and Salt Lake City, UT.
