Today's show is a special one. We are joined by Tasreen Khamisa - a mother of three, a faithful sister and a woman with a mission. The day of this interview's recording was January 21, 2016 which marks the 21st anniversary of her brother Tariq's murder. After Tariq was senselessly gunned down in a gang-related ambush while he was delivering pizzas in North Park San Diego, their father Azim Khamisa founded TKF, The Tariq Khamisa Foundation. This foundation - which stops youth violence through education, mentorship and restorative practice programs - has impacted millions of children worldwide teaching the principles of nonviolence and peace. Tasreen has guided the foundation as Executive Director two times - 1998 to 2003 and December 2014 to the present. Listen in as she speaks about her brother, the foundation and a purpose that drives her.
