We are honored that Imran sat down with us to share an update on his life, his flourishing journalism career, and his activism in his community in Chicago.

The genocidal attacks on the Rohingya people of Myanmar began 5 years ago today, and has resulted in the deaths of thousands of men, women, and children. The United Nations estimates that approximately 700,000 people were forced to flee the country for safety, and many survivors still live in horrific conditions in camps in Bangladesh.
