Nawar Shora

"I’ve said for years our greatest enemy in society is the lack of trust. We get to lack of trust through lack of communication and lack of understanding. If we flip all those elements into the positive, the formula is simple: Communication + Understanding = Trust"

Nawar Shora, JD, has spent his two-decade plus career at the intersection of civil rights and national security. He is a highly sought-after public speaker, discussing the history, norms, mores, culture, and current events of the Arab and Muslim worlds with an eye towards amplifying our humanity and the fabric of our American values. He approaches intimidating and difficult topics with humor, diplomacy and charm and has been called the “Arab Robin Williams” by members of the NYPD for his high energy, wit, and occasional Freudian joke.
