U.S. Middle East Policy & the 2008 Elections: A Critical Moment


CLEVELAND: Dr. James J. Zogby, founder and president of the Arab American Institute (AAI), will speak about the importance of the United States’ Middle East policy in this fall’s election at noon on Friday, July 18, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland.


The AAI serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community, and since 1985, Zogby has led its efforts to secure political empowerment for Arab American in the U.S.

A co-founder and chairman of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign in the late 1970s, Zogby later co-founded and served as the executive director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and in 1982, co-founded Save Lebanon, Inc. In 1993, Vice President Al Gore asked Zogby to lead Builders for Peace, a private sector committee to promote U.S. business investment in the West Bank and Gaza. In 1994, with former U.S. Congressman Mel Levine, Zogby led a U.S. delegation to the signing of the Israeli-Palestinian agreement in Cairo.

Personally active in U.S. politics, Zogby served as deputy campaign manager and senior advisor to the Jesse Jackson Presidential campaigns, and in 1995, was appointed co-convener of the National Democratic Ethnic Coordinating Committee, a post he was reelected to twice. In 2001, he was appointed to the Executive Committee of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and in 2006, was named co-chair of the DNC’s Resolutions Committee.

Zogby has testified before U.S. House and Senate committees, has been guest speaker in the Secretary's Open Forum at the U.S. Department of State, and has addressed the United Nations. He serves as a board member of Middle East Watch, as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and on the national advisory board of the American Civil Liberties Union.


Tickets are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included. They can be purchased by calling The City Club at 216.621.0082 or visiting the Website at:  www.cityclub.org
