The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) has chosen ending the war in Yemen as a priority for upcoming lobbying efforts. Come learn more about the situation in Yemen and how you can join in the lobbying campaign.
With critical support from the United States, the Saudi-led coalition’s war and blockade in Yemen have helped create the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, pushing over 16 million people to the brink of famine. On Feb. 4, 2021, President Biden announced that the United States would end its support for the coalition’s offensive operations in Yemen, but important aspects of U.S. complicity remain.
Hassan El-Tayyab is FCNL’s legislative director for Middle East policy. His passion for foreign affairs is rooted in his desire to make life better for people in the Middle East, including his extended family in Jordan, and for peace and stability worldwide. Prior to joining FCNL in August 2019, he was co-director of the national advocacy group Just Foreign Policy and played a major role in the successful passage of the War Powers Resolution to end U.S. military participation in the Saudi-led coalition’s war and blockade on Yemen. He is also the co-author of a children’s book called “We Stand Up for What’s Right” a story inspired by passage of the Yemen War Powers Resolution and written to tell younger generations born after 9/11, who have never lived in an America not at war, that war is not the answer, war is not inevitable and there are better ways to resolve our differences.
