Learn about the local Afghan refugee experience through engaging conversations and authentic Afghan cooking demonstration.
Compassion in Action Conversation
Be Inspired – Explore Afghan Food & Culture – Make a Difference
Let’s come together to:
- Have interactive dialog with people affected by and interested in Afghan resettlement in Metrowest and Greater Boston.
- Connect with other curious and compassionate neighbors who want to make a difference.
- Support Hospitality Common’s mission to serve and support immigrant and refugee families while building bridges of hope, understanding, and opportunity.
- Support and encourage a local food business owner during this challenging pandemic crisis.
You’re invited to our first Compassion in Action event and fundraiser. Have fun and make new friends in a virtual cooking class while engaging in a conversation experience. Learn about Afghan culture, food, and traditions from an Afghan family. This is a Zoom event curated by activist Gary Moorehead, founder of Kataluma, and Najeeb Rostami, owner of Ariana Restaurant in Boston.
Hospitality Common, Inc. (HCI) is a faith-based non-profit providing educational and charitable programs to underserved communities. Accordingly, we are compelled to build bridges of hope into our community through education, volunteer programs, and service opportunities. We are an inclusive Christian organization committed to serving and partnering with people of all faith traditions as well as those having no faith tradition. We believe every human being is made in the image of God, and, therefore, is to be cherished and treated with the greatest dignity.
We are thrilled to announce our third annual Faith In Fashion event which marks the collaboration between Roxbury Presbyterian Church Social Impact Center and iconic Boston fashion designer David Josef. This extraordinary fundraising event includes some of Boston’s top designers and models. AND it is our biggest fundraiser of the year! There will be great food, wine, fantastic entertainment and this year, we are thrilled to welcome our special guest singer/actor Nik Walker, currently starring as Aaron Burr in the touring company of the hit Broadway musical ‘Hamilton.’
It promises to be a big night, bringing together people of faith, people of fashion and a variety of others from all over the Boston area who are committed to love, healing, and social justice.
Please mark the date and share this notice with your personal list of friends & family!

I am writing to invite you to a Single Release Concert and Poetry Night at Charles Street AME in Dorchester on June 14th at 7 pm.
I have been in the United Kingdom for the past 4 years at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland where I recently completed my PhD program.
My PhD graduation is on July 10th back in the UK which I will be attending. However, I don’t want to go alone. I want to return with my family (four of us). Unfortunately, I don’t have the funds to purchase four flight tickets and pay for hotel accommodation for the brief time in the UK. So, I decided to release a single I have been working on at a concert and poetry night. Attached is the flyer.
I will also be singing from my previous two gospel albums, reading from my upcoming book on Poetic Expressions as well as commenting on social and penal issues from my book: Locked Up and Locked Down: Multitude Lingers in Limbo Revised Edition. Below is the Eventbrite link for more details. Thanks for your support.
