We condemn the heinous attack on the Kaaj Higher Educational Center in Kabul that killed dozens of people, many of whom are believed to be young Hazara women & children, and severely injured many more. Education centers must never be a target of violence. cbsnews.com/amp/news/afghani…

.@amyklobuchar met with Afghan women leaders, including GIWPS & partners, to discuss the #AfghanAdjustmentAct. This bipartisan bill would give Afghans brought into the US last August a clear path to permanent status. @MinasList @Afghan_American @HumanFirstAfg @WAWHumanRights
Our Afghan allies sacrificed so much for our country. We owe it to them to do everything we can to help them find stability and opportunity in the United States. I met with a group of Afghan refugees advocating for Congress to pass my bipartisan Afghan Adjustment Act.

The Taliban try to use religion as a justification to keep girls out of schools + restrict #womensrights but they are misinterpreting Islam. Swipe for a few examples of Islam's support of education for all + a read of Dr. Kadayifci-Orellana's research: l8r.it/h4S3

Afghan women have shown at the Capitol every day for the last 2 wks as part of the #AAAFireWatch. Not for the press, not for the photos, not for anyone other than themselves and their families here and aboard. What have you done to support them? #AfghanAdjustmentAct #ThisIsHome

Girls in #Afghanistan have been banned from secondary education for over 1 year. Last week, @GIWPS co-hosted an #UNGA side event with @Malala, @MalalaFund and the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the UN on securing women’s and girls’ rights in Afghanistan. #LetAfghanGirlsLearn.

A world where women were equal in every aspect of society would be richer, safer, and more stable. This summer, I joined a group of women with @GIWPS & @RockefellerFdn to discuss how to advance women's leadership. The key takeaway? We are #Overdue4Equity. rockfound.link/Overdue4
