MMP is delighted to be a sponsor of the “World Without Hate” community event on December 3, 2017 at the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline.

This event will feature a talk by Rais Bhuiyan, co-founder of  World Without Hate  (WWH) and author of The True American, which tells his story of being shot in the face for being a Muslim, in the days following 9/11, by a white supremacist.

His story is about “the transformational power of forgiveness, of embracing compassion and mercy, and of teaching others the beauty to be found in acceptance and empathy.”

World Without Hate has created the Empathy Ambassadors Leadership Training Program, which is an experiential program for young people exploring the interconnectedness of self, other, and community, as well as awareness, connection, and conflict resolution. Through active participation, the program asks the students themselves to begin to bear some of the responsibility for ensuring that none of their peers ever feels bullied or isolated, and it provides them with the tools they will need to create the environment within which this can happen. This program is particularly valuable for schools in which disparate populations come together.

Seating is limited – please get free tickets here.
