Join us to hear Humaira Ghilzai, Social Entrepreneur and Co-founder of Afghan Friends Network, share a pictorial presentation of her pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam's holiest site.  Her two week journey in the heart of Saudi Arabia pressed her, as a secular feminist, to make compromises and trade-offs that made her question her faith and the role of spirituality in our disparate world.  Ms. Ghilzai was born and raised in Kabul and currently resides in San Francisco.
