March EVENING Programming

+Author Talk with Atia Abawi | March 15 @ 7PM – 9PM | NCCHR

International journalist and author Atia Abawi joins us for a conversation about the current situation of Afghan women and children now that the Taliban are back in power. Women in Afghanistan have been effectively cut off from society and girls have been banned from school after 6th grade. What does this mean for them? What does it mean for us? Are there ways to help?
