Join Mokhtar Alkhanshali in a story and coffee tasting evening as he takes us on his journey of how he followed a childhood passion to one of the historical origins of coffee, and the world's birthplace for coffee commercialization at the ancient port city of his country of heritage: Mocha. Learn how that passion is rejuvenating the coffee economy in Yemen, and how he risked his life going through a militia takeover, air bombings and crossing the Red Sea on a small boat to bring coffee back and keep the farmer's dreams alive.

Torture violates international law, U.S. law, and human decency. Yet, as the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence study of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program confirms, the U.S. has used extensive torture post-911. Join us for a community conversation open to the public to feel and think – through poetry, film, history and a community conversation – about the contours of where we are, how we got here, and our way forward. The event, which includes an open mic portion, readings from the report, discussions about the effects of torture on victims and communities, and an excerpt from the documentary "Taxi to the Dark Side," will conclude with a town hall community meeting to discuss pivotal questions such as: How do we keep responsible people and institutions accountable for committing torture? And how can we strengthen our movements to create a world where torture is rejected?
