The evening was organized by Adjunct Faculty Zari Hedayat, Ph.D., who stated “I am so grateful for the radio program that clued me into your organization[Women’s Voices Now] and very pleased that I contacted you. I think you did an extraordinary job all around; starting with explaining your program and helping me formulate my purpose for the introductory lecture on Islam. You did a wonderful job of helping me access and sort through some of the movies. I am impressed by how quickly you were able to pull together three panelists who turned out to be wonderful, lively and very informative. And you did it all while also providing the food, a photographer and flawless organizational skills! What can I say? If ever I had an organization, I would want you to be running it.”
