The Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club hosted Azim Khamisa as its featured guest speaker on March 28 at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club.
Committing his life to halting the continuing cycle of violence among youth, Khamisa became a social activist after his 20-year-old son, Tariq, was murdered in 1995 by a 14-year- old while delivering pizzas.
Khamisa has received over 65 humanitarian awards from people and organizations as diverse as the Dalai Llama, the White House, the Children’s Defense Fund, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Child Safety Network.
This month Khamisa was appointed as President to the Child Safety Network in CSN’s continuing mission to make America a safer place for children. He is also the founder and National Director of the Constant and Never Ending Improvement program. For more, see the story inside this newspaper.
