Welcome Legal Alliance
Welcoming Afghan evacuees by offering legal support
Join the hundreds of lawyers giving Afghan evacuees critical pro bono legal services
Nearly 80,000 people were evacuated from their homes in Afghanistan and have sought refuge and a new beginning in the United States. Now, many Afghan families and individuals are facing asylum deadlines and other legal needs critical to building a secure future here in the United States. The Welcome Legal Alliance channels the passion of the nation’s lawyers to ensure Afghan evacuees have access to critical pro bono legal services to support, among other things, their immigration legal needs. The Welcome Legal Alliance is a Welcome.US initiative to mobilize the nation’s lawyers to ensure that Afghan evacuees have access to critical pro bono legal services to support, among other things, their immigration legal needs.
Lawyers are a key resource in this fight.
Lawyers across the country are rising to the occasion and volunteering to support immigration, refugee, and asylum cases. Whatever experience level, area of expertise, or availability, lawyers who volunteer with the Welcome Legal Alliance will be connected with opportunities to help provide the frontline legal services our Afghan allies and new neighbors need. There remains an immense and urgent need for pro bono legal services to help navigate our immigration system. It is impossible to overstate the impact you can make — both for the outcome of the case and for the safety of people seeking a new beginning in the United States.
