POMED’s 3rd Annual Leaders for Democracy Reception
POMED is hosting its 3rd annual Leaders for Democracy awards reception, which will take place the evening of February 2nd. The recent events in Tunisia only highlight the inherent instability of the region’s authoritarian regimes and the importance of POMED’s work to support democratic reform across the Middle East and North Africa. You can get tickets to the event here.
At the reception, we will be honoring three individuals whose research, public service, and activism have inspired us: Gamal Eid, human rights attorney and Executive Director of the Arab Network for Human Rights Information; Ibrahim Eissa, former Editor-in-Chief of Al-Dostor newspaper; and Michael H. Posner, Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
This year’s event will take place at 7 pm on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011, in the First Amendment Lounge at the National Press Club, located at 529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20045. We will be providing drinks and a catered reception.
