Helping our Afghan Allies

Because the immigration system is so complicated, and the particular situation that brought them here is so extraordinary, arriving Afghans will require legal services just to be able to live a stable and productive life in our community, without fear of being returned to a country where they would be unsafe. They will require representation to maintain lawful status in the United States, whether it’s by keeping work authorizations current or by filing applications for asylum, or lawful permanent residence.

Welcome South

To welcome our Afghan allies into the community, we will be working in coordination with Welcome South, a coalition of Advocates for Immigrant Rights, Community Legal Center, and Mid-South Immigration Advocates, to provide the legal services that our newest neighbors will need to thrive in their new home.

Welcome South_Color

When you give today, you join us in bringing hope, healing, and restoration to our Afghan allies right here in Memphis.

Help us welcome our Afghan neighbors.
