We are excited to announce that we will be holding a reading group Thursday, November 9, from 5-6PM in Furman Hall 604 (6th floor).

Our reading group topic concerns the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. We are honored to announce that this discussion will be led by Joanna Naples-Mitchell, a 3L at NYU with experience advocating for human rights in Yemen. The discussion will begin with the showing of the 10-minute FRONTLINE documentary on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Joanna will provide an overview and development of the situation, and will talk about avenues for advocacy.

Joanna recommends the following reading in preparation for the discussion:
