The Syrian Crisis: Impact and Response
Thursday, February 9
6:30 – 8:00 PM
9603 Woods Dr
Skokie, IL 60077
Speakers Dr. Zaher Sahloul (Former President of the Syrian American Medical Society), Suzanne Akhras Sahloul (Founder and Executive Director of the Syrian Community Network), and moderator Whitney Cross (U.S. Fund for UNICEF) will discuss how we can help the millions of Syrian refugees in Jordan, Turkey, Europe and elsewhere.
As the world faces the worst refugee crisis since World War II and the Holocaust, it is a reminder that we must speak out. We must offer compassion to the millions of innocent people who are fleeing brutality.
The cost of human life and loss in Syria is difficult to comprehend. Over 450,000 Syrians have been killed (approximately the population of Atlanta), 50,000 of those children. Another 4.8 million Syrians are refugees, with 6.1 million displaced within Syria. We must raise our voices.
Join us as we learn about the ongoing conflict in Syria, the challenges of daily life for civilians still there, as well as how we can help refugees already here, and the implications of the recent Executive Order.
Global Strategists Association in partnership with Truman National Security Project
International Affairs & Communities of Color
Saturday, February 18, 2017 | 9:30 am
DuSable Museum of African American History
740 E 56th Pl | Chicago, IL
The Global Strategists Association in partnership with the Truman National Security Project presents International Affairs & Communities of Color: Leveraging experiences, connections and knowledge of our veterans and other national security officials to help solve contemporary issues facing communities of color.
The event will take place from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm at the DuSable Museum of African American History.
The recent events in America have underscored the work that needs to be done to promote, and advance communities of color. The purpose of this program is see how we can leverage the experiences and talents of members of our communities with international experiences in this on-going, and likely increasing struggle.
There is a long, and storied history of African Americans engaging with other international communities for inspiration, support and leverage in their fight for social justice in America. Whereas, the global war on terror and the expansion of U.S. engagement overseas has given many veterans of our community the opportunity to obtain experiences, and build relationships with communities around the world that are going through many problems similar to our own.
We hope to explore some of the lessons these veterans have learned that may be applicable to ongoing movements, such as community policing, national security, economic development and discuss how we can better enable these individuals to utilize their talents in a productive manner.
