The Situation in Afghanistan

WE MUST SAVE THE LIVES OF WOMEN FACING DEATH THREATS AND ENSURE THEIR SAFETY

The Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan, and the lives of Afghan women and girls are in danger. For two decades, Afghan women have been leading efforts to build a brighter future for Afghanistan, working hand-in-hand with the United States. Now, the Taliban is targeting Afghan women activists and threatening their lives.

We must save the lives of women civil society, and human rights leaders

They are facing death threats in Afghanistan. We need to ensure their safety.

The United States has the moral responsibility to evacuate at-risk women and prioritize their visas and refugee status. They stood with the U.S. by implementing our programs, supporting our interests, and advancing democratic values. Now, we must stand with them. The Biden Administration must ensure the evacuation of Afghan women who are most at-risk, getting them out of Afghanistan before it is too late.
