Here’s the good news. When you join us today, you can.

"I helped U.S. troops in Afghanistan. I’m safe now, but I worry for friends I left behind."

Program participant Seeta Habib and her family were resettled in Memphis in October 2020 through the special immigrant visa program. She and her husband had served as interpreters and journalists for U.S. forces in their home country, and they were consequently targeted by the Taliban. Read her story here.

At the end of August, the U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan, increasing the attacks from the Taliban on Afghan nationals who supported the U.S. mission and violence against Afghan women and children. Hear from Jenny Yang, SVP of Advocacy and Policy and Ken Primus, Office Director of World Relief Tri-Cities (who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan) about what can the U.S. do to #SaveOurAllies and how can we respond.
