  • We need to push the U.S. Government to help get Afghans who are trying to flee from the impending violent Taliban regime.
  • We need to pressure the State Department to expedite visa processing.
  • We need to organize and deliver humanitarian assistance to displaced populations. “There is still a small window of opportunity to potentially negotiate with the Taliban to allow for humanitarian corridors and supply chains to stay open.”

What we can do extends to our personal and community interactions.”
