Webinar: Making Our Homes & Community Safer: Responding to Afghan Evacuees — API-GBV & WAW (Women for Afghan Women)

Following the sudden withdrawal of U.S. military presence from Afghanistan nearly 100,000 Afghan refugees were evacuated to the United States, with many still remaining on U.S. military bases and resettlement to happen by the end of January 2022. Many evacuees now face uncertainty related to their immigration status, concern about families back in Afghanistan, and the challenge of acclimating to life in the U.S.

This webinar will be hosted by API-GBV and presented by Women for Afghan Women (WAW), which has been at the front line of ensuring a safe and dignified transition for Afghan refugees through family counseling, education, vocational training, coalition-building, and more. Naheed Samadi Bahram, WAW’s U.S. Country Director, will join us to discuss some of the challenges recent arrivals face, what resources are available, and how service providers can respond to and identify cases of gender-based violence.
