Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the Prosecutors For Prosecutors campaign necessary?
Following the fall of Kabul to the Taliban in August of 2021, the US and allied countries operated an airlift to evacuate their citizens and those Afghans who had assisted the allied efforts over the past 20 years. The airlift was only able to evacuate about 122,000 people. The number of Afghan allies that supported allied efforts for 20 years is estimated to exceed 1 million. Approximately 6,000 US and allied trained prosecutors, who upheld the rule of law by prosecuting terrorists, murderers, drug traffickers, and crimes of violence, have been left behind.

Other than donating, how can I help?
In addition to funds, we seek experienced, talented, and passionate partners to help relocate prosecutors to places of safety. Helping them find employment as teachers, paralegals, law clerks, and investigators while they pass U.S. bar requirements is an important part of our mission. You can also help by spreading the word.
