Program Materials
What do funders need to better understand about the global forces and systems that lead to forced displacement? How are groups responding to these global forces in a liberatory, intersectional, and transnational way? Frontline leaders and movements are, among other things, providing legal assistance and engaging in popular education. Join GCIR and these leaders as they discuss their responses to forced displacement.

Soon after the U.S. government’s hasty and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan last summer, the United States received over 80,000 Afghan evacuees, many of whom were at added risk due to their association with the U.S. government during the two-decade war. Ninety percent of these migrants entered the country on humanitarian parole (HP), which allows them to live and work in the U.S. for two years, but does not provide a path to permanent residency, leaving them in legal limbo. The Afghan Adjustment Act (AAA), would allow Afghans with humanitarian parole to apply for permanent legal status and would expand the categories of Afghans eligible for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs).
