The Welcome Legal Alliance is mobilizing thousands of volunteers to support the legal service needs of Afghan newcomers.

Over 80,000 people were evacuated from Afghanistan and sought refuge in the United States. Now, many of our new Afghan neighbors must apply for asylum in order to build a secure and permanent future here.

The Welcome Legal Alliance channels the passion and skill of volunteers around the country to help our Afghan allies access essential legal support.

Whether you are an attorney or have other skills to share, you can play an important role in helping support Afghan families who are seeking to rebuild their lives in the United States. Some of our volunteers are experienced in the immigration sector, but others are new to this work. Some can devote many months to volunteering, while others have a couple of hours to give. Everyone is needed and welcome.

The Welcome Legal Alliance and its legal service experts will guide you every step of the way and give you the training and mentorship you need to succeed.
