Hammer Forum

The Migrant Tide from Syria

  • This is a past program

With millions fleeing Syria for safe haven, how should and how can Europe, and for that matter the United States, address the crisis? Jana Mason, Senior Advisor, External Relations & Government Affairs at the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Dr. Orfan Chalabi, CA chapter president of the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS), and Dr. Max Sawaf, Syrian American medical doctor active in refugee field hospitals and raising funds for food supplies, speak with Ian Masters, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and KPFK 90.7 FM radio host.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.

Hammer Forum is made possible by the Michael Asher Foundation and Bronya and Andrew Galef.
