Rais Bhuiyan - healing the hate
Communities Rising! sponsors Healing the Hate, this coming Sunday, December 3rd from 3-5pm at the Shoreline Center, Shoreline Room (north end of complex), 18560 1st Ave NE, 98155.

Speaker Rais Bhuiyan will describe the path he has been on since being shot in the face by a white supremacist, ten days after 9/11.

Jessica Carso, Executive Director of World Without Hate (WWH), will facilitate the event, which includes "The Empathy Ambassadors Leadership Training Program."

The program is for participants from middle school on up, including adults. It is customized for audience and atmosphere, from corporations and businesses, nonprofits and community organizations, and even a curriculum for prison communities.

Carso explains, "This is in response to feedback from participants. We have a team working on customization and updated curriculum for specific participant groups."

Editions of the book The True American will be available, which tells Rais' story, entwined with that of the man who shot him. The book was recently recommended in The NY Times as one of three books to read during these times of trauma.

The event is free, but tickets are requested for planning purposes: Free tickets here
