Speaking at New York Law School

Today, I had the honor and privilege to be invited by the New York State Division of Veterans Affairs to make an address at their Human Rights Conference at New York Law School. I spoke of my experience as a “MuslimMarine” providing my insight and thoughts to the audience. I talked of the importance of staying true to that famous creed, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” My message of inclusion resonated well!

Also, had the cool honor to hang out with my fellow brother Veteran Kristofer Goldsmith of High Ground Veterans Advocacy as well as with the President of the ACLU, Susan Herman who delivered the keynote — awesome woman by the way!
