The Challenges and Opportunities around Building Afghan and Afghan American Narratives
Afghans and Afghan-Americans once again find themselves at an inflection point. One of the factors that could help pave the road ahead of them is the narrative that is shaped and curated about their history, their experiences, and their identities. This panel discussed the various ways in which narratives develop, the forces that drive them, and ways in which Afghans, Afghan-Americans, and their allies must engage to ensure a focus this work is done responsibly and without causing further harm.
MPAC and the Afghan-American Foundation hosted a 4 day virtual summit to discuss key issues relating to the crisis in Afghanistan and its impact in the United States. Empowering Afghans: Reframing the Narrative and Providing Support is a summit designed to elevate leading Afghan and Afghan-American voices. We identified tangible solutions and highlighted organizations doing critical response work in the United States and Afghanistan.
