Struggling with famine, drought, and violence, Somalia today is at a crossroads between a deepening crisis and a path to stability. Desperation is still driving people to crowded cities, refugee camps, or to the ranks of militant groups, even as a newly-elected government looks for a better way forward. Photographer and filmmaker Nichole Sobecki and writer Laura Heaton spent 18 months documenting a more personal story of Somalia, one told through the people living with a changing climate and the human consequences. The multi-media event is co-hosted by New America, The GroundTruth Project, and the Stanley Foundation.
Venue: New America, 740 15th St NW #900, Washington, D.C. 20005
Time: May 30, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
