The United States and our Allies operated in Afghanistan for twenty years. This presence not only involved U.S. and Allied military and non-governmental organizations, but also affected many aspects of Afghan life. For women, journalists, artists, activists and similar groups, there has been an era of openness and opportunity. This time has come to a sudden end with the return of the Taliban to the governance of the country. All of these groups and their networks of families, relatives, friends and associates became endangered and are now seeking safety in the United States and other allied countries. All those who supported the Allied efforts in Afghanistan, including the cultural and political aspirations of a more open society, are now in need of our support.
