WCVE Forum May 29: “Arab Voices: What They Are Saying To Us, And Why It Matters”
The World Affairs Council of Greater Richmond presents James Zogby, President of the Arab-American Institute and senior advisor to the polling firm Zogby International for “Arab Voices: What They Are Saying To Us, And Why It Matters.” Zogby asks the questions, collects the answers, and shares the results that will aide in understanding the Arab World more clearly. He brings into stark relief the myths, assumptions, and biases that hold many back from understanding these important people.
He debuts a brand new, comprehensive poll run by Zogby International exclusively for his book, bringing numbers to life so that we can base policy and perception on the real world, rather than on a conjured reality.
Zogby has been active in U.S. politics for many years. He has testified before Congressional committees, has been guest speaker on a number of occasions in the Secretary’s Open Forum at the U.S. Department of State, and has addressed the United Nations and other international forums.
