Humanizing the cost of war

As Democratic delegates gather in Charlotte, N.C. to weigh in on their political party’s platform for the next four years, a silent cadre of Afghan faces will ask them to consider the people affected by those policies.

Eighteen murals depicting civilians wounded or killed during the war in Afghanistan will be displayed in the midst of the Democratic National Convention from Sept. 1-8. They are replicas of the murals of "Windows and Mirrors," AFSC’s exhibition of 45 murals created by U.S. artists.

Storyology 2012: Using My Heart

 

Budding immigrant filmmakers debuted their 3-minute masterpieces to a standing room only crowd at International House Charlotte on Friday, March 16, 2012. A story of treacherous journeys across the sea and prison escapes mingled with personal stories of a marriage broken by abuse, a student’s journey from a refugee camp to a Charlotte school, and an account of how a family got its start in the United States. Each story was different, but each painted a picture of the external and internal struggles faced by immigrants in North Carolina today.
