  • March 6 - Haider Newmani will discuss how he survived arrest, injury, kidnapping and the loss of family and friends through four major wars in Iraq.
  • April 10 - Zak Ebrahim, whose father shot and killed a leader of the Jewish Defense League and received several life sentences after he was linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing plot, will address how he now promotes peace after growing up in an environment of terrorism and bigotry.

All lectures start at 7 p.m. and will take place at Reardon Auditorium.
