Action Alert: Afghan Adjust Act

Interfaith Immigration Toolkit

To honor the service of U.S. Veterans, so many of whom have been working to get stability for Afghans and in light of the upcoming season of gratitude, we want to express our deep appreciation. Thank you.

We know that for so many Veterans passing the Afghan Adjustment Act (AAA), is a matter of keeping their promise to Afghan allies. Thank you for all the work done, thus far, even though the AAA effort continues.

This has been an effort that involves so many, therefore:

  • We thank the Afghans who have arrived in the U.S. and become part of our communities and shared their gift of resilience. Please know, that we share your concern for the loved ones who have not yet made it to our shores
  • We thank you, Michael, for persevering with us in our advocacy journey which began in 2021 with the fall of Kabul.
  • We thank all the volunteers involved in the welcoming response during the past two years.
  • We thank our Immigration Action Team, for committing to the advocacy work and, in particular, to Bob Shields, our volunteer lead on the AAA.
  • We thank the many constituents who have joined advocacy calls on this topic with their federal legislators.
  • And we join our partners in the Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC) to express our gratitude to all the Representatives and Senators who have agreed to support our new Afghan neighbors by co-sponsoring the AAA.

Michael, consider helping us win the politics of attention by taking UUSJ’s action and by using the IIC toolkit to engage your Representatives and Senators via social media.

Our asks:

  • Thank your federal legislator for being a AAA co-sponsor
  • If any of your federal legislators have yet to become co-sponsors, ask them to become co-sponsors for the AAA

See the IIC toolkit for details on how you can engage your federal legislators via social media.

Your support enables UUSJ (a 501c3) to provide a unique vehicle, consistent with UU values, to achieve just & equitable national policies & actions.
