War and Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

Historians of Unitarian Universalism point out that our tradition is neither a peace church nor a militant church. One hundred years ago Unitarian congregations in America overwhelmingly supported US involvement in the First World War. How do our values of “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” call on us to respond to wars around the world today? What about wars funded by our own tax dollars?

Aisha Jumaan is a public-health specialist working as a consultant on health-related projects in Yemen. She has over 20 years of experience in public health including viral vaccine preventable diseases, cervical and breast cancer research, surveillance, maternal, child health and nutrition, primary health care, and women in development. Dr. Jumaan will speak to our congregation about the humanitarian disaster caused by the war in Yemen, and what we can do about it.
