Join us for a series of online presentations with youth of the Afghan diaspora from the Chicagoland area. These three humanizing sessions center around diverse lived experiences and understanding of being Afghan.
Event speakers Sayeda (undergraduate student at UIC College of Business), Asma (student at Metea Valley High School), Masooma (student at Niles North High School), and Ayesha (PhD student in the UIC College of Education) are all co-founders of Chicago for Afghans, a group that organized two community protests in downtown Chicago last summer to raise awareness on the current crisis. All four speakers share diverse ethnic backgrounds: Hazara, Tajik, Pashtun, Hindkowan.
The sessions meet at the following times:
- Monday, January 31; 6:30–7:30 p.m.
- Monday, February 7; 6:30–7:30 p.m.
- Monday, February 14; 6:30–7:30 p.m.
This event is hosted by the UIC College of Education and co-sponsored by the UIC Arab American Cultural Center, the UIC Asian American Resource and Cultural Center, the UIC Gender and Women's Studies Program, the UIC Latino Cultural Center, the UIC Women's Leadership and Resource Center.
