Communities of all walks of life came together in solidarity to break bread and discuss what needs to be done as a society and culturally to come to a better understanding with each other. 

“People should get out of their mosques, synagogues and churches and get to know each other,” said Engineering scientist Zeeshan Rizvi. “Recently the events in New Zealand have prompted a lot of solidarity efforts between people to reach out,” added Rizvi.

Zeeshan alluded that it’s important to have events like these as they bridge the gap between cultures. having an open dialogue is key to a functional way of life as the world attempts to move forward.
