Elizabeth Watson is a retired teacher of the deaf. She joined Canadians in Support of Afghan Women in 2001, especially interested in helping to support schools in Afghanistan. She found not only the opportunities to do that but also to connect with Afghan women by obtaining and selling their goods and by talks to the public. By beinginvolved in this organization Liz has also been involved in the rewriting of a human rights kit for use in Canadian schools and has done several talks in schools, thus exposing many students to the curriculum materials and to the situation in Afghanistan. When Liz is not doing something for the organization she enjoys music, loves to fiddle, to travel and the outdoors, and reading inspiring stories, and those where folks are struggling. Come and listen to Elizabeth Watson, and ask questions about the situation in Afghanistan, and what we, as humanists, can do.
