Peter Lems, American Friends Service Committee Program Director for Iraq and Afghanistan will look at the impact of the troop withdrawal from Iraq, our responsibilities to acknowledge the damage, and lessons learned for the peace movement. How can we then use those lessons learned to speed-up the removal of US troops and bases from Afghanistan.
WINDOWS AND MIRRORS: Reflections on the War in Afghanistan
is a traveling exhibit that makes a powerful statement on a nearly invisible reality. The 28 panels created by international and US artists and 20 drawings by Afghan students help us imagine the experience of Afghan civilians – from death and destruction to hopes for peace. www.windowsandmirrors.org

Meeting participantswill help organize actions to mark the 10th Anniversary of 9-11; campaigns to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and plan for the Kansas City exhibition Windows & Mirrors Afghan Mural exhibit and related activities.
This presentation from the Windows and Mirrors exhibit in Philadelphia was the first in a series of events related to the exhibit. AFSC hopes to stimulate dialogue about the costs of the war in an effort to get Americans to push for peace in Afghanistan, and to resist future wars.
