Washington State Response to Afghanistan Crisis Sign-Up Form
Please fill out this form if you would like to be involved in the Washington state response to the devastation in Afghanistan, and support for the incoming Afghan refugees in our state. By completing this form, you will receive an email once every two weeks or so that provides resources, action alerts, and other ways to take action. You will also be contacted by our team of volunteers to follow up on specific ways you indicated that you would be able to contribute (but please be patient with us as our team works through hundreds of responses!).
This effort is a coordinated response between several service providers working on the ground and resettlement agencies in order to avoid duplication, maximize efficiency/effectiveness, and strive to ensure a response to the refugee crisis that is culturally-competent, religiously-literate, and language appropriate. Through this coordinated effort under the title "Afghan Refugee Collective," we hope to make Washington state a model for the rest of the nation.
