A disaster is unfolding in Afghanistan as tens of thousands of people attempt to flee in fear of a return to life under a violent, repressive regime.
People in Afghanistan are facing a humanitarian catastrophe, with women, LGBTQ+ individuals, and children at greater risk for violence and forced displacement.

Right now, the United States is still planning to withdraw all troops by August 31, and it is unclear who will control the Kabul airport — a key exit point — after they depart. That means we have just days to help get as many people to safety as possible.

Tell the Biden administration to ensure humanitarian aid will be delivered to Afghans and to remove the refugee cap for Afghan refugees accepted into the United States.
