"Zak Ebrahim stood out to every single attendee as one of the most inspiring speakers of the conference."
- Report from Student Peace Alliance Natl. Conference,
“Aside from the intrinsic appeal of his thought-provoking story, Zak was humble, focused, intelligent and articulate--a guest speaker who was well liked and easy to work with. People said they could sense that he really came from the heart.”
- Rev. Larry Hall, Pebble Hill Interfaith Church
Bucks County, Pa
“Zak’s presentation is not so much a speech as it is a life story continuing to unfold in your hearing. It is a generous offering, full of love, pain, and hope. While many of the details are startling, his authenticity and undefended nature invite the listener to draw closer. Zak embodies the nonviolence to which he is committed, and in which he continues to grow. He humbly and thoughtfully demonstrates that each of us can make concrete choices for peace from the very midst of our personal histories, however challenging. He quietly beckons us to a life both examined and shared.”
- Rev. Scott Hutchinson, St. Andrew’s United Church of Christ
