Join AIUSA local group #500 in Austin, Texas to hear photographer and author Peggy Kelsey discuss human rights in Afghanistan via the stories of Afghan women she's interviewed. There will be a photo exhibit, Q&A, petitions and/or cards to sign to take action and a book signing.
Peggy will be signing copies of her book, "Gathering Strength: Conversations with Afghan Women".
This event is free admission, and refreshments will be available.
Reject the false choice between military action and doing nothing in Syria. Military strikes cannot bring justice. US leaders must act urgently with the international community to address the issues that are fueling the conflict in Syria and exacerbating its toll on civilians.
The participation of Afghan women in shaping their country’s future and engaging as equal partners will help improve and secure their political status, security, economic and social well-being, and uphold their human rights.
