Muna Jondy will speak Nov. 6 in the Flohr Lecture Hall of the Clark Memorial Library.
Shawnee State University welcomes Muna Jondy to present “Syrian Refugees Crisis: Treat the Symptoms, Stop the Cause” lecture at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, November 6 in the Flohr Lecture Hall of the Clark Memorial Library.
Jondy is an attorney specializing in immigration and a cooperating attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan. She also currently serving as legal consultant for Americans for a Free Syria, an organization focusing on political advocacy in Washington DC to promote freedom, dignity and democracy for the Syrian people.
Jondy earned her B.A. in History from the University of Michigan, a J.D. from the University of Manitoba in Canada, and an LL.M. from the Michigan State University College of Law.
Jondy’s lecture is in conjunction with the Common Read program, and the SSU Common Read for the 2017-18 school year is A Hope More Powerful than the Sea by Melissa Fleming. It tells the story of Doaa al-Zamel, a Syrian refugee who is one of only eleven survivors to be rescued in 2015 when their fishing boat set for Europe and containing 500 refugees was intentionally capsized.
Jondy’s lecture is open and free to all SSU students, staff, faculty, and to the surrounding community.
