Fleeing from the Taliban - How to help Afghan judges resettled in the United States

Hosted by Hon. Richard Ginkowski, Pleasant Prairie, WI

Imagine being forced out of your job and home and targeted for potential execution.  That's what in particular women who served as judges in Afghanistan are facing with the Taliban's return to power.  New York attorney Michael Byowitz, former chair of the ABA's International Law Section, chairs the Afghanistan Legal Professionals Resettlement Task Force, and tells us how we can help displaced judges.
