Rais Bhuiyan

Rais Bhuiyan, 6 p.m.

Common CAHSS 2019 concludes with a powerful keynote speaker—Rais Bhuiyan. As the survivor of a white supremacist hate crime attack, Rais encountered the violence of discrimination all too vividly. His experiences shaped his dedication to human rights activism and the pursuit of empathy, understanding and forgiveness. After founding the non-profit "World Without Hate" in 2011, Rais has visited and worked with more than 200,000 people around the world.
