Resources on the Afghan Evacuation

Resources for Afghans

Human Rights First's Project: Afghan Legal Assistance (PALA) is halting requests for legal assistance until we catch up on the more than 3,000 individual requests we have already received. As we process and work through this backlog of submitted requests, we want to ensure we are providing quality services and advocacy for Afghans who have already filed requests for assistance.


Steps to Protect Your Online Identity

Human Rights First has developed resources to help Afghans protect their online identities from the Taliban -- including deleting digital histories and evading the misuse of biometric data.

Our guides are available in English, Dari, and Pashto.

موږ لارښود لرو چې په انګلیسي ، پښتو او دري خبرې کولی شي.

Please help us get these resources into the hands of those who need them.

Guidelines on Going Into Hiding

Human rights activists in Afghanistan are asking for guidance on how to stay safe from the Taliban and from others who would do them harm until they can find a way out of the country. While activists themselves are best-suited to assess their risk and make an informed decision about their safety, Human Rights First has compiled guidelines for going into hiding.

Take Action: Tell Congress

To ensure that Afghans find real, lasting safety in the U.S., Congress must pass the Afghan Adjustment Act, which would allow Afghans arriving with humanitarian parole to seek legal permanent residence in the U.S.

Tell Congress to pass the Afghan Adjustment Act.
