Join with fellow community members on the tenth anniversary of September 11th to remember this tragic event and to reflect on its impact on religious and ethnic relations in our community and country.

Sahar Aziz is an associate professor of law at Texas Wesleyan School of Law and frequently writes about national security and civil rights issues for a variety of media sites including CNN.com, Huffington Post, altmuslim, and the Houston Chronicle. She has served as a senior policy advisor at the U.S Department of Homeland Security.
