Blue Campaign Special Initiatives Support: Operation Allies Welcome

On August 29, 2021, President Biden directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to lead and coordinate ongoing efforts across the federal government to support vulnerable Afghans, including those who worked alongside us in Afghanistan for the past two decades, as they safely resettle in the United States. At the President’s direction, the Secretary of Homeland Security is working with representatives from across the government to coordinate our response and ensure unity of effort.

Blue Campaign provided support to DHS and government coordinated efforts by developing human trafficking awareness materials in Dari and Pashto. These materials are being used to communicate with refugees so they understand where they can get support if they feel they are being forced to work or engage it commercial sex acts against their will. Frontline workers are also using these materials to recognize and report suspected human trafficking among refugees.
