Vets for American Ideals (a project of Human Rights First) will host Save Our Afghan Allies, a webinar on Wednesday, August 18, 12-1pm (Eastern Time) via Zoom.
The United States has almost completely withdrawn troops from Afghanistan, on track to end our nation’s longest war. However, attacks from the Taliban are rising against the brave Afghan heroes who served alongside our forces. We must fight to ensure that every last one of our allies is brought to safety in U.S. territory - where they will have access to the U.S. immigration system and be sheltered from Taliban violence. Join CWS and VFAI to hear from a U.S. veteran and Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) recipients about why we need the administration to act now to evacuate all of our allies and their families to U.S. territory. Learn about the reality on the ground in Afghanistan and what you can do to help save our Afghan allies and refugees during the August congressional recess.
**UPDATE: Given the current circumstances, this event has been postponed until further notice in order to allow the Afghan speakers, many of whom still have family in Afghanistan, the space to process during this difficult time. When the event has been rescheduled, the information will be posted.**
