Skirball Talks: We Are Syrians

Laura Flanders, the award-winning author and host of The Laura Flanders Show, will interview SAR scholars Naila Al-Atrash, Radwan Ziadeh, and Sana Mustafa as they describe how they were forced out of Syria by a government that wanted to silence them, and how they refused to be silent.

Detailed in the recently released book We Are Syrians: Three Generations, Three Dissidents, their powerful first-hand experiences—as a theater director, a dentist, and a university student living under the Assad regime—help tell the larger story of the Syrian conflict and how the spirit of Syrian people lives on.

Scholars at Risk has assisted many Syrian scholars escaping the conflict and participated in the development of We Are Syrians. This event is free and open to the public. Tickets are required. Please RSVP here.
