Displacement Today: Afghanistan, Haiti, Palestine, and Beyond
October 5, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
While we often see the consequences of displacement–people being trapped at borders, Indigenous people resisting being pushed from their homes, and the criminalization of migrants–there is not enough public conversation about displacement itself. This year has involved gross examples of people being displaced around the world that were visible to many–as Afghans put into vulnerable positions by the US fled Afghanistan, as Haitians dealing with a series of disasters have sought refuge, as Palestinians have faced bulldozers and armed forces working to push them out of their homes in Jerusalem, and as disasters driven by climate change have forced people in many places to flee. Please join us for a timely discussion with an incredible panel.
