Forgiving the Unforgivable
Join us for a conversation with Rais Bhuiyan, an American Muslim from Bangladesh and extraordinary individual with a powerful story. Ten days after 9/11, Rais was the victim of a horrific hate crime. Shot in the face at point blank range by a white supremacist, Rais barely survived. His near-death experience and subsequent religious pilgrimage sparked a profound journey, including the creation of World Without Hate and a campaign to save his attacker from death row.
