THE EVOLUTION OF AAC
In April 2015, the first Afghan-American Conference was hosted at U.C. Berkeley by eight young Afghan-Americans from across the United States. The space was an opportunity for our diaspora to have difficult conversations in an engaging and respectful way. Since then, the conference has grown and spread across the nation.
