FIGHTING TO SAVE THE LIVES OF THOSE THAT SERVED THE U.S.
On August 31th, 2021, US Military Forces departed Afghanistan. Since then, Taliban have escalated their systematic execution of all those who worked with US Forces, starting with our translators. We need your help to help save the over 160,000 SIV applicants who are awaiting Special Immigrant Visas for their service. These loyal and trustworthy Afghans served with U.S. combat veterans and need our help now more than ever. Click below to learn how you can help.
Wartime Allies Have Been Waiting for Our Help
LEARN ABOUT PAST U.S. WARTIME ALLY EVACUATIONS
Vietnam - Operation New Life
In 1975, with the North Vietnamese in quick pursuit, US Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen helped save 130,000 Vietnamese Refugees. The Ford administration supported the immigration of these Wartime allies on Guam, later bringing them to the continental US. We can't afford to wait until the last moment. We must act now.
Kosovo - Operation Provide Refuge
In 1999, after Serbian forces attacked Pristina (Kosovo), the U.S. airlifted around 20,000 Kosovar Albanians to Fort Dix, NJ, where their eligibility for refugee status was determined. It was hailed as a new Ellis Island for Kosovo Refugees.
August 2021 Afghan Evacuation
The week of July 25th, 2021, saw the first evacuees from Afghanistan to U.S. soil. While this is a huge victory, current projections show only 3,000 of the 70,000+ will be evacuated. WE NEED TO DO MORE
NOTE: This AWA prediction proved to be accurate.
At some point in the future, we will send our military to another country. Regardless of advanced technology, we will need Wartime allies. Our actions today will send a message to those future allies that we stand by those that risk their lives for us. Interpreters are our cultural and linguistic guides.
