On Sunday, August 15th, the Taliban took Kabul.
Following the attacks on 9/11, the United States responded by overthrowing the Taliban and seeking out those responsible for the attack. Unfortunately, as evidenced by what we saw last week, just shy of 20 years after the invasion, the efforts to create a country governed by the Afghan people, for the Afghan people, was a complete failure. The Taliban have retaken complete control of the nation, while the former leaders have sought refuge in nearby countries.
Join us for a panel discussion with experts who share their experiences as Afghan-Americans and their work in senior roles in government and civil society. The conversation will focus on the evolving crisis and what the U.S. should do from here.
Joining the discussion:
