Marianne Ibrahim has worked tirelessly as an organizer, activist and journalist. She was awarded the 2012 Vital Voices Global Trailblazer award, which recognizes global women leaders. Marianne will discuss the plight of Christians in the Middle East and her work with human rights, social peace and interfaith dialogue organizations with Dr. Dina Ibrahim, media analyst and educator. Both were in Egypt for the Arab Spring upheavals. Father Ninos Oshaana has family roots in Iraq and brings the valuable perspective of an Eastern Orthodox Christian priest with an Assyrian background.
