Our Mission

United Afghan-American Coalition (UAAC)

Established in August 2021, the United Afghan-American Coalition aims to help Afghan Partners and Allies safely navigate the Refugee process as they find new lives and homes in the United States and abroad.

We are a community of Afghan American Families and Partners based in the Salt Lake City, Utah area actively working to bridge the gap between the processes here at home and the families/individuals abroad that need it the most. We strive to help as many people as possible find safety and security outside Taliban ruled Afghanistan.

Our vision is to empower Afghan voices both in the United States and Afghanistan. We envision a world where Afghan Refugee voices are heard and their dreams become a reality.
