Panel Title: “A Refugee Crisis, Forced Migration, and Contemporary Afghanistan”
Members of the Afghanistan Youth Empowerment and Peace-building Organization—many of whom have recently immigrated to Germany in the wake of the Taliban’s return to power—will discuss their commitment to social justice in Afghanistan, the circumstances surrounding their escape from Kabul, the myriad difficulties of refugee life in the 21st Century, and the various ways that concerned global citizens can contribute resources to the ongoing refugee crisis.
Poetry Reading: “A More Perfect Union: Immigrant Songs in Modern America”
The poet Kareem Tayyar will read selections of his work that chronicle the experiences of first and second-generation immigrants in the contemporary United States, with a particular focus on California’s relationship to the Middle Eastern Diaspora.
