Matt Zeller '04 Helps the Allies the U.S. Left Behind
Matthew “Matt” Zeller ’04 and his organization, No One Left Behind, were recently mentioned in a Washington Post Article. The article discusses how Zeller’s work has helped Afghan and Iraqi citizens that served as translators for the U.S. during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
No One Left Behind is an organization that seeks to ensure the U.S. State Department upholds its promises of Special Immigrant Visas to combat zone translators. These translators have been seeking refuge in the U.S. since 2008, but are now struggling in poverty without jobs, housing, and health care. The article highlights No One Left Behind’s partnership with other companies, like the rideshare company, Lyft, to provide these translators with the veterans benefits and recognition they deserve.
