The newly established Detroit Center for Civil Discourse launches with this panel on Yemen, featuring professors Saeed Khan and Howard Lupovitch, Yemeni-Israeli community activist Ashley Attar, and vice president of the Yemeni American Leadership Association Emad Shammakh.

We are thrilled that the Hon. Mokhtar Algaadani, Consul General of the Republic of Yemen, will be giving words of welcome at this panel. Yemen, where 22 million people are at risk of starvation, has the potential to unite Muslims and Jews, and many others, in a critical cause for our world.

The February panel will also launch our recruitment effort to start the first cohort of the Wayne State Civil Discourse Fellowship, which will consist of 10-16 students, split evenly between Muslim and Jewish students.

In partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council and the Michigan Muslim Community Council.
