Advocacy & Allyship: Welcoming Afghans to St. Louis

Monday, October 25 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

The St. Louis area is preparing to welcome up to 1,000 Afghans as part of the effort to resettle thousands who worked in support of the US during two decades of conflict.

Join this conversation, moderated by Brown School Associate Dean for Global Strategy & Programs Lindsay Stark, to hear perspectives from people deeply engaged in the resettlement effort. Learn what you can do to help welcome our new neighbors.

This Advocacy & Allyship Series program is presented in partnership with the Roblee Foundation; Institute for Public Health’s Center for Human Rights, Gender and Migration; the Brown School’s Office of Global Programs, Clark-Fox Policy Institute, and Washington University's Social Policy Institute.

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
