On 21st of October, Imam Mujahid Ramadan, Officer Misael Parra and Y. Alp Aslandogan came together at Power 88 radio station to discuss the essence of the Hizmet movement and the importance of social dialog.

The talk show was presented by Silver Sage Foundation and hosted by Imam Muhajid Ramadan who is the co-chairman of Multi-Cultural Advisory Council of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD). Even though it was a short 30-minutes discussion, the participants talked about the important issues related to the disparity between different social communities and how we can use dialog to bring an understanding between peoples from different or even opposing backgrounds.

LVMPD Public Information Officer Misael Parra talked about how the police department works hard to establish order by taking special care at reaching out to people, listening to their problems and try to solve them.

Y. Alp Aslandogan, PhD who is the executive director of the Alliance for Shared Values (AfSV) narrated his tale of getting into the Hizmet movement. He talked about how the movement turned into a global social organization from a small local community in Turkey. He stated that the movement’s ultimate aim is to bring people from different races, religions, backgrounds, ideologies together and establish harmony in the society.

We offer our thanks to KCEP Power 88 for this beautiful opportunity to discuss such important matter on air.

Henderson Libraries’ Teen Service department organized a beautiful initiative as they provided ‘Thank you’ card kits for children between ages 11-17 so that they could express their gratitude to the healthcare workers who risk their lives to help others during these harsh pandemic conditions.

Silver Sage Foundation rallied our community’s parents and children to get the kits, write fill them up with best wishes and thanks, and send our best wishes to the doctors, nurses and other healthcare personnel. Fortunately, our children were greatly enthusiastic about this initiative and they prepared beautiful and heart-felt cards to be distributed to the healthcare workers all around Henderson.

We would like to thank to all healthcare workers around the world. We also would like to thank Henderson Libraries for this precious initiative. Lastly, we gave thanks to the children participated in this effort to share love and support during these demanding days of COVID-19 pandemic.
