We are currently collecting emergency information from people who are connected to Colorado's 6th District. The information on this form will be communicated to the US Department of State, the US Embassy in Kabul, USCIS, or other agencies as needed. We cannot promise anything, but we are doing everything we can to assist our Afghan allies and their families:

U.S Citizens should also fill out a form from the U.S Embassy. The U.S. Embassy in Kabul is collecting information from U.S. Citizens who may need assistance returning to the United States due to the security situation in Afghanistan. The information collected in this form will only be used by the U.S. Embassy for the purpose of facilitating return travel to the United States:
