A new special report highlights Afghan newcomers’ $1.71 billion potential annual earnings and $227 million potential annual tax dollars, in an effort to spur legislative or administrative action and ensure stability for over 36k Afghans in the U.S.

Upwardly Global wrote the report with over a dozen partners about Afghan newcomers’ immense contributions to the U.S. economy and society, urging swift action to protect the status of Afghan newcomers in the U.S.

The report outlines four key groups who have immense potential to contribute: Afghan professionals filling labor market gaps, Afghan women leaders and human rights defenders, Afghans who are reinvigorating communities, and Afghan students.
