Speaking at the Parish of the Epiphany, Winchester
Sunday, April 30 11:30-12:30
Join us for a conversation with Ehsan Zaffar, himself an immigrant and now an advocate for those living on the margins of our society.
How is our faith the foundation and guide for sustained action around the world in support of justice and assistance for the marginalized and oppressed?
How do we welcome the stranger, the refugee, and the immigrant?
Ehsan Zaffar is a member of the faculties of the Washington College of Law at American University, George Mason University, and George Washington University. He teaches courses on homeland security policy and civil rights, as well as privacy and surveillance law.
Mr. Zaffar worked with diverse communities and young adults in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina to build resilience and assist vulnerable communities. He advises the Secretary of Homeland Security and DHS components on the civil rights and civil liberties implications of existing and proposed national security policies, programs, and procedures.
On May 1st, Mr. Zaffar will be the featured speaker at MIT’s Radius program in the ethics of science and technology. Information about his Radius talk, scheduled for 5:00 p.m. and entitled “National Security: Do we have to sacrifice our human rights?” can be found at radius.mit.edu or by contacting Thea Keith-Lucas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
