Join the Upper Midwest Chapter (USA) of WBW for a webinar in solidarity with the Global Day of Action on January 25 to say No to War on Yemen! We’ll hear from Tarek Alkadri who was born and raised in Yemen and came to the U.S. in 1990. He is the founder and Board Chair of PureHands.org, a nonprofit organization providing material aid to the people of Yemen. Tarek will give a picture of what’s happening in Yemen and what we can do to stop the war and suffering. Then, we’ll break out into discussion groups to meet others in the Midwest area.
