Help refugees restart their lives and careers in the U.S.

Newcomers to the U.S. are more educated than at any other time in our history. Yet, today, there are more than 2.3 million unemployed or under-employed refugees and immigrants in the U.S., struggling to restart their lives and careers.

Sohaila, an immigrant from Afghanistan, spent years pursuing her education and working as a surgeon and medical professor before she was forced to flee her country. She left everything behind to rebuild her life in the U.S.

Sign our petition to express your support for refugees and immigrants, like Sohaila, and help them realize their dreams to restart their careers in the U.S.

Following the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021, nearly 75,000 Afghans fled their homeland and approximately 10,000 of these Afghan newcomers have college degrees, professional training, and are proficient in English.

Upwardly Global empowers refugee and immigrant professionals with job skills, coaching, and in-demand credentials needed to re-build their careers in roles across industries including IT, engineering, finance, business, and healthcare. Upwardly Global has placed more than 9,000 refugees and immigrants in thriving-wage jobs, adding over $600 million to the economy each year.

You can help create opportunities for thousands of refugees and immigrants, like Sohaila, by signing this petition.
