Capitol Calling Party: Afghanistan: What Next?
On Tuesday, September 7, join CODEPINK Congress for a conversation about the dire economic crisis facing Afghanistan. Our guests will talk about the need to push back on U.S. sanctions and the withholding of international funding, which only harms the Afghan people; the need to end U.S. drone assassinations, how to deal with the Taliban, and how to support Afghan women.

Sonali is also the founding Co-Director of the Afghan Women’s Mission, a US-based non-profit solidarity organization that funds the work of RAWA, Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan.

She also serves on the national board of Jewish Voice for Peace and the board of the Afro-Middle East Center in Johannesburg.
