Following the fall of Kabul and the evacuation of Afghan friends and allies, an estimated 75,000 Afghans are arriving in the United States, with 450 to New Haven and Connecticut to rebuild their lives. They are fleeing retribution or persecution from the Taliban and have one goal: to live in safety. Come and learn about the many efforts underway and how you can help. This event is co-sponsored by the Asian Network at Yale, Future Leaders of Yale, Working Women’s Network, and Yale Veterans Network.
Panelists will include:
Ann O’Brien, IRIS Director of Community Engagement
Alaaddin Ibrahimy, Afghanistan Graduate Student
Hossna Samadi, IRIS Ambassador, Afghanistan Refugee
