textile Afghan Outreach Project

Since August 2021, more than 75,000 Afghans fled the Taliban and resettled in the United States. Among these refugees are several judges and lawyers.

In 2022, SABA San Diego launched an Afghan Outreach Project designed to support these individuals in their efforts to make connections and find employment. In contrast to scholarship and fellowship projects that are currently being developed by other groups, we are focused on securing entry-level legal sector positions to provide a starting point for refugee-lawyers.
