I found your page through Zafar Saleem Bangash's Page. It seems we share some common interests so I wanted to make my introduction. I'm Chris from New Orleans. I'm studying Comparative legal systems at Tulane Law School and am very interested in Human Rights, Mediation and Negotiation. I'm also a former artist (making a giant leap to law) and illustrator whose career went from fine art, through illustration, to graphics, then to advertising. One day I woke up and said "how did this happen?"

Given our common interests it would be good to start communication so we can refer to each other for advice in the future. Please take a minute to view my page and leave a message if you like.

U.S. Policy for Afghanistan : Reassessing Strategies

As Congress contemplates re-authorization of the Afghanistan Freedom Support Act, as well as

budgetary and supplemental support for reconstruction effort and military efforts, a critical juncture

has been reached. Issues regarding the U.S. ’s strategy for Afghanistan have been discussed at

numerous hearings sponsored by both House and Senate committees.

The Afghanistan Advocacy Group, a national nonpartisan network of Afghan-American and

American professionals and activists, will host a timely forum on Capitol Hill on this topic. The

forum will focus upon AAG’s recommendations on policies and programs for Afghanistan , based on

the practical “on the ground” experience of many members and strengthened by advice of experts

in the U.S. who understand both cultures.

Date: Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Time: 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Followed by lunch and Q&A

Location: Rayburn B-338 Conference Room

RSVP: Please confirm your participation by contacting by noon on Monday, March 17th

What has been missing in the dialogue on the Hill regarding these issues since 9/11 is the voice of

Afghan-Americans. This group has been an underutilized asset in policymakers’ understanding of

the challenges in Afghanistan , as well as possible approaches to improving efforts to bring about

security and economic development. As productive and concerned citizens of the U.S. , whose

native country is Afghanistan , Afghan-Americans provide a unique perspective. AAG’s goal is to

bring that perspective to Capitol Hill and share it with Hill offices in a constructive and concise way.

AAG participants and supporters will participate in a “Capitol Hill Walk” after the event, stopping by

all Members’ offices in the House of Representatives on relevant committees to provide AAG’s

Policy Brief and to show support for continued U.S. assistance for Afghanistan .

The walk will begin at Room B-339 at 1:30 p.m. and will take approximately one hour.

The goal of the event and such information sharing is to add value to the process of reassessing

AFSA and other legislation related to Afghanistan and the war against terror and identifying ways in

which to improve the effectiveness of U.S. funding for Afghanistan .

The objective of the Afghanistan Advocacy Group is to serve as a platform in order to advance

dialogue between concerned citizens and U.S. and Afghan policymakers on development and

security in Afghanistan . AAG has been building a network of professionals and activists from

across the U.S. who can provide constructive recommendations on programs and reforms needed

to achieve stability and economic and social development in Afghanistan
