Dear Professor Morris,

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

I’m writing to introduce you to the Forum on Law, Culture & Society, a non-profit based at NYU that aims to get people off their couches, out of their homes, and into a thought-provoking setting where they can engage with the human rights and social justice issues of our day.

We have an upcoming event that I think ​you might be excited about. ​ We’re going to be discussing THE SIEGE (1998) and its societal implications in today’s world with its award-winning director ​Ed Zwick and other special guests ​(Details below.)​ ​

​If you could spread the word to anyone else who might be interested, it would be much appreciated. ​Thanks for your time and hope to see you there!

Best,
Katie Yee
