Welcoming Afghans, Pt IV

Veterans Day is a day to celebrate the military men and women who have served and are serving in the Armed Forces – and their commitment to the effort to welcome Afghans to America is no exception. In this week’s episode, we look at how the military community has stepped up to the challenge of welcoming new arrivals – and how these connections, along with new legislation, can set Afghans up for success.

We speak this week with Margaret Stock, an immigration attorney and retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U-S Army Reserve. Also included in this week’s episode are Nazanin Ash, the CEO of Welcome.us, and Nadia Hashimi, a pediatrician, novelist, and member of the Welcome.us coalition.
