StandWithUs NW: Irwin Cotler: The Campaign to Delegitimize Israel: A Human-Rights Perspective

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $36.

Civics, Uncategorized

The Fifth Annual Community Reception of StandWithUs Northwest presents Irwin Cotler, the former attorney general of Canada and a preeminent international human-rights attorney. For his work representing prisoners of conscience—including Andrei Sakharov and Natan Sharansky in the former Soviet Union, Nelson Mandela in South Africa, and Jacobo Timerman in Argentina—Cotler has been characterized as “counsel for the oppressed.” The Emeritus Professor of Law at McGill University also is a strong advocate for Israel, having rejected and rebutted anti-Israel actions at the U.N.; he now serves as the international legal counsel to Shoaib Choudhury, a Muslim Bangladeshi journalist charged with sedition, treason, and blasphemy for advocating interfaith dialogue and peace with Israel. Presented by StandWithUs Northwest.

Tickets are $36 at www.standwithus.com/chapters/northwest/ and at the door. For more information, call 206/801-0902.

      Leah,

      I’m a little confused about what this is in reference to. Town Hall communicates on many platforms, including here in the comments section of our website, via email, and with printed materials. If you have any questions about how to access our various platforms you can always email us at info@townhallseattle.org.

      Best,
      Anthony Detrano
      Director of Marketing and Communications
