Dear Supporter Ji,
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to use our online tool to contact your elected officials in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate to urge them to resettle and protect Afghanistan’s Sikhs and Hindus.
Thanks to your advocacy, 20 senators and 26 representatives signed onto a bipartisan ‘dear colleague’ letter, encouraging other legislators and the Trump Administration to take immediate action. Whether or not your elected officials signed on, you helped to raise the alarm about this urgent issue!
Now, we need your help once more. Can you share the above graphic on social media to encourage your friends and family to contact their elected officials too? Send them to bit.ly/resettle-afghans to take action today. The situation remains dire: Just last week, a Sikh community leader was abducted by extremists.
To date, more than 1,000 of your fellow Sikh Americans and allies have already joined this fight with you. Together, we can continue to push the U.S. government to take key, immediate steps to resettle and protect the few remaining Afghan Sikh and Hindu families. It’s up to us to keep the pressure on.
