NORWALK, Conn. -- Rwandan genocide survivor and philanthropist Daniel Trust will speak at Norwalk Community College on Thursday, Oct. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Gen Re Forum.

Trust is a nationally recognized motivational speaker and founder of the Daniel Trust Foundation. He immigrated to the United States as a refugee and went on to start and run a nonprofit foundation that teaches the benefits of forgiving yourself and others.

“More than 800,000 Rwandans were killed during the 1994 genocide, including my parents and many members of my family," he says. "As a survivor, I strongly believe that I was saved for a reason and I have a purpose on this earth. I share my story to help people understand that love is greater than hate. And forgiveness sets us free.

"I would not be the person I am today if I hadn’t forgiven the people who murdered my parents and those that abused me when I became an orphan.”

The public is invited to attend the lecture, and admission is free. The event will be co-hosted by the NCC Diversity Committee, the Humanitarian Peace Club and the Equality Club.

For additional information, contact Professor Hannah Moeckel-Rieke at HMoeckel-Rieke@norwalk.edu, or call 203-857-7335.

Norwalk Community College is at 188 Richards Ave., Norwalk.
