One of the indispensable contributors to the Senate passage SJRes7, the war powers resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Saudi war on Yemen was the national grassroots lobbying effort coordinated by Hassan El-Tayyab.
Over the past several years, he has been working to end the war in Yemen through direct lobbying, publishing his writings, grassroots organizing, public speaking, and his working to create a larger platform to Yemeni voices working for peace.
El-Tayyab relocated to D.C. in September 2018 to do advocacy work on behalf of the Yemen war powers resolution, to end US involvement in the Saudi war on Yemen. In that time he has worked alongside staff from advocacy organizations including Freedom Works, Defense Priorities, In Defense of Christians, the Koch Institute, FCNL, Win Without War, Committee for Responsible Foreign Policy, Demand Progress, Yemen Peace Project, and Peace Action. Hassan has also taken dozens of meetings with Congressional offices alongside national security expert Col Larry Wilkerson, who served as Colin Powell’s chief of Staff during the Bush Administration.
