An Evening with Hon. Gurbir Grewal
October 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm
Attorney General of the State of New Jersey
The first Sikh-American attorney general in United States history, Gurbir Grewal will discuss “How Does It Feel to Be a Problem? Being Young and Arab in America,” the book by Moustafa Bayoumi selected as Rider University’s 2018 Shared Read. Hundreds of students, faculty and staff on campus are reading this American Book Award winner.
Grewal will share his own experiences of growing up in New Jersey as the son of Indian immigrants, and how he deals with routine death threats and hate by rising above them with compassion and respect. In July, Grewal earned admiration for the grace and dignity with which he handled radio hosts who singled him out for observing his faith by wearing a turban. He will also discuss his vision for New Jersey to lead the nation in protecting the civil rights of all people.
