The recent political and military developments in Northern Syria are deeply concerning. This evening event aims to bring a combination of scholars and Kurdish community members from the Bay Area to dialogue about their experience and insights on the Kurdish struggle and answer any questions the audience may have. We hope that this community engagement and the experiences and knowledge shared could stimulate deeper understanding and constructive action.

Join us to learn, to share, and to be together.
