Honoring the Promise to Our Afghan Allies
Providing safe passage, relocation, resettlement, and resilience
Working Together to Save Lives
Task Force Pineapple is a private-public partnership with a level of bipartisanship that has not been seen in the U.S. since 9/11. In August 2021 there was an expedited withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. To honor the promise to our at-risk Afghan allies, a diverse group of individuals and organizations came together to save lives. A fully virtual underground railroad, dubbed The Pineapple Express, was put in place to honor that promise.
Answering the Call
We answered the call from our Afghan allies who fought alongside us for decades, shoulder-to-shoulder. Allies who share our values, with whom we broke bread and with whom we have bled on the battlefield. We support not just the Afghan Special Operations Forces that we know personally but all at-risk Afghans, especially Afghan women, children, LBGTQ+, artists, and athletes.
It was our duty as Americans to leave no one behind.
