  • Aug. 31: Community Conversation: The Crisis in Afghanistan, 6:30-8:00 p.m. at UCCD Office, 151 E. 5600 S., Ste 206, Murray. "The Council recognizes that people have many questions about the crisis in Afghanistan but might not know where to look for answers, who to ask, or might feel too embarrassed about asking these questions. UCCD will host a timely and exclusive conversation about the crisis in Afghanistan with Ahmad Afzali, our own International Exchange Program Director. Please come ready to learn and ask questions in this open and respectful conversation. Ahmad will share his point of view about the historical context of America’s role in Afghanistan, the recent fall of the Afghan government and Taliban takeover, and how recent events have resulted in a humanitarian crisis for thousands of people in Afghanistan. You must be vaccinated to attend. Sitting is limited to 30 spots, so register today!"
