NBC LX joins UNF’s Conversation on Afghanistan

Last month, UNF hosted “A Conversation on Afghanistan” to discuss the country’s current situation and how local groups are assisting in resettling refugees. The virtual panel featured Fawzia Ahsan, UNF Master of Arts in International Affairs student; Laura Cook, Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida senior refugee services program manager; and Richard Reiter, State Department fellow.

After the conversation, Fawzia Ahsan and Laura Cook sat down with NBC LX to share more. Ahsan discussed the situation in her home country from a personal perspective and Cook shared how she is working with Lutheran Social Services to assist Afghani refugees locally. Watch the story on NBC LX.
