Resilience, Strength, & Truth: Issues of Refugee Resettlement

Wed., April 17 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Join CAIRS and the Carbondale Public Library to hear from Kathy Kelly on issues of refugee resettlement.

About the Special Guest Speaker: Kathy Kelly, Board President of World BEYOND War, coordinates the Merchants of Death War Crimes Tribunal. Since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, she has coordinated an international network to assist young Afghans forced to flee their country. Kelly made over two dozen trips to Afghanistan from 2010–2019, living with young Afghan Peace Volunteers in a working-class neighborhood in Kabul. Kathy has been an educator for most of her life, but she believes children of war and those who are victims of violence have been her most important teachers.
