Sponsored by the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation and others

A UNICEF report says 9.6 million children (80% of all the children in Yemen) need humanitarian assistance, and the World Food Program predicts the deaths of 150,000 malnourished children in the next few months.

Why is there so little discussion of the U.S. role in perpetuating this ongoing catastrophe? And what can we, as Americans, do about it? Come hear a panel discuss this devastating crisis—and the steps to take moving forward.

SPEAKERS:
~Congressman Adam Smith, Congressional Representative, Washington’s Ninth District
~Kate Kizer, Policy Director at Win Without War (formerly with Yemen Peace Project)
~Kate Gould, Legislative Director for Middle East Peace at the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL)
~Aisha Jumaan, Yemeni-American Activist, President of Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation
~Amy Hagopian, moderator
