Carolina Peace Center Founder, Faisal Khan

HISTORY

Carolina Peace Center was founded by Faisal R Khan in 2016 after years of advocacy work exposing human rights violations in the US and abroad. Our aim is to alleviate hardship and injustice by collectively advocating on behalf of marginalized individuals. 

In 2017,  Faisal R Khan was invited by US Congressman David Price at a joint session in Washington, DC in recognizing his work for his advocacy for refugee and immigrant families. 

“I am pleased to welcome Faisal to Washington,” said Congressman Price. “I have been honored to work closely with him on behalf of refugee and immigrant families in the Fourth District, and I have long admired his advocacy for tolerance and peace. In the face of the President’s continuing attacks on immigrants and refugees, I am particularly pleased to welcome Faisal Khan, a courageous voice for our national values of acceptance and equality.” 

Carolina Peace Center continues to advocate and stand up in a peaceful and non-violent manner for anyone who is experiencing racism, bigotry, and any form of hate through unjust policies.
