After their tours of duty in Afghanistan, U.S. veterans, Keith Alaniz, Emily Miller and Kimberly Jung, wanted to do more to help rebuild Afghan society. So they started Rumi Spice, a “for-profit social enterprise” that links Afghan farmers with global markets, through harvesting and selling the world’s most expensive spice - saffron. For our Global Activism series, they’ll join us to tell stories about their tours of duty in Afghanistan and how the people they encountered inspired them to create a brighter future for Afghanistan.
