The Zami Student Housing Cooperative presents an evening to benefit the Afghan Women's Mission.
Sahar Saba of RAWA will be speaking on her experiences and the current situation of women in Afghanistan. Serving on RAWA’s foreign affairs committee, Sahar has traveled to many countries in the past several years to speak on behalf of RAWA. Sahar was born in Kabul; in 1979, her family fled Afghanistan to the refugee camps in Pakistan to escape the Soviet invasion, and she was educated at one of RAWA’s underground schools.
Following Ms. Saba's presentation there will be a showing of the film Sadaa E Zan (90 minutes), which documents the stories of the women in war ravaged Afghanistan and under the Taliban. There will also be a raffle as well as an after party with local DJ Durt spinning records.
Zami is a student owned housing co-op and community space located in downtown Santa Cruz. There is a suggested donation of $15 ($10 students) or whatever is affordable.
When: Friday, April 9th 7:00pm
Where: Zami! 807 Laurel Street Santa Cruz, Calif.
