Wethersfield Public Schools Welcomes Guest Speaker Rais Bhuiyan - 1/22/18 - 6pm - SDMS
Posted 01/12/2018 02:33PM

Wethersfield Parents, Guardians and Community Members - Please join us in a conversation with Mr. Rais Bhuiyan. His tale of empathy and kindness in the face of hate and personal attack will inspire.  Rais will also be joining SDMS students and families for the day on January 22. 2018 to share his story and life's journey.

Rais Bhuiyan, an American Muslim from Bangladesh, is an extraordinary individual with a powerful story. After serving as an air force pilot in Bangladesh, Rais moved to the United States in 1999 to study computer technology. Ten days after 9/11, Rais was the victim of a horrific hate crime, attacked by, Mark Stroman, self-described “the Arab slayer,” Rais barely survived. Sadly, two other victims were killed. Stroman was sentenced to death; ten years later, Rais led an international campaign, fighting to save Stroman’s life. Rais’ near death experience sparked a profound journey of soul searching and began his path as a human rights activist for peace, forgiveness, empathy and understanding. Though Rais’ effort to save Stroman from execution in 2011 was unsuccessful, his transformative ability to turn hate into compassion and forgive the unforgivable has been transformative. Through his non-profit, World Without Hate, Rais has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people as he shares his inspirational story and message at schools, universities, organizations and conferences all over the world.
