Tahirih Launches Helpline for Afghan Evacuees
The Tahirih Justice Center launched its Afghan Asylum Project to support Afghan citizens who recently arrived in the United States. Beginning September 13, Afghan citizens seeking assistance can call a dedicated, toll-free line (888-991-0852) and be connected with resources and local organizations that are providing on-the-ground support. In addition, trauma-informed Tahirih staff will be conducting legal screenings remotely with anyone presenting gender-based asylum claims for potential legal representation by Tahirih staff and Tahirih’s pro bono network.
