PLEASE DON’T FORGET ABOUT US:
A Fundraiser for Afghan Refugees
Tuesday, October 19 at 7pm
Join us for this virtual program as we discuss the challenges and hurdles faced by Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban after the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. We will hear from individuals who are working to resettle Afghan immigrants, as well as Afghan photographer Abdul Saboor who has been capturing heartbreaking images of the country’s residents who have suffered under civil war and U.S. occupation for two decades. The event will also feature a virtual auction with all funds raised split evenly between Connecticut Immigrant Refugee Coalition (CIRC) and Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS CT).
