Upstander Speaker Series: Rais Bhuiyan

Description

RSVP required through Eventbrite. In 2001, while working at a Dallas convenience store, Rais Bhuiyan was shot in the face by Mark Stroman, a white supremacist seeking vengeance for the 9/11 tragedy. Remarkably, Bhuiyan survived the attack and responded by forgiving his attacker and attempting unsuccessfully to prevent his execution. Bhuiyan is now a peace activist and the founder and president of World Without Hate, an organization dedicated to eradicating ignorance, hate, and violence through education and by fostering compassion, empathy, and understanding. Upstander Speaker Series Presented by: The Dallas Morning News Sponsors: Michele Valdez and Gary Kennedy, Anonymous Community Partner: Communities Foundation of Texas
