Leadership Alliances Rally Support For Women

The SUNY STONY BROOK Leadership Alliance hosted “Freedom Fest,” a day-long event to raise awareness and mobilize support for the women of Afghanistan. The event included a screening of FMF’s “Shroud of Silence,” along with feminist speakers, poets, and musicians, and a fundraiser for FMF’s Help Afghan Women Campaign. The WESTERN VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY affiliate recently hosted a panel discussion on the plight of women in Afghanistan. The group showed FMF’s “Shroud of Silence” and engaged an audience of over 100 people through a panel discussion led by university professors. Highlighting the success of the event, the campus newspaper gave the Leadership Alliance front-page coverage the following day! Show your support, learn more about the campaign to Stop Gender Apartheid, and take action at www.helpafghanwomen.com.
