We are pleased to announce the addition of “Seeking Peace in Afghanistan” to September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows’ 2021 webinar series. Afghan panelists will speak with us from Kabul and from abroad, joining with international panelists to bring perspectives from the lives of Afghans living courageously through the last two decades of war and the recent escalation in violence. We will hear of the impact of the war upon the lives of women, youth and civilians and of seeds for peace that are being sown in its midst. The webinar will go beyond the limits of troop withdrawal to present nonviolent pathways of peacekeeping, reparations and witnessing on the long road ahead to peace with justice for Afghanistan.
The webinar will be moderated by Ellen Judd, who facilitates the work of Peaceful Tomorrows related to Afghanistan and to the US/NATO war in Afghanistan.
