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.
