Is the following sentence correct:

I would like to point upcoming events in Week 19, which is directly affecting our operational duties.

I think it should be "which are", and the verb affect usually I know it means negative, so could we interchange with "impact" or something else?

Using commas on your questions will help us understand your question more easily and faster.

The sentence sounds good; "which" might be referring to either "events" or the whole action, the upcoming events in Week 19. Therefore, both can be considered to be correct. However, if you are referring to "events" on "which", then you should replace "is" for "are".

Certainly, you could replace "affect" for another verb that has a similar meaning, such as: impact, reach.
