WSI Announces 8th Annual International Conference

Washington DC: The World Sindhi Institute (WSI) will hold its 8th Annual International Conference on Friday, November 9, 2007 from 3:30pm-9:00pm at the Charles Sumner School on 17th and M Streets in Washington, DC. This year, the conference is being held on the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of the organization, which was founded in 1997. But following the tragic mass killing of innocent people in Karachi on October 18, instead of 10th anniversary, the conference will focus on the current situation in Pakistan
The keynote speaker Mr. Hussain Haroon, former Speaker of Sindh Assembly, renowned thinker, scholar and leader of Sindh and head of daily DAWN, will address the conference. Mr. Zahid Makhdoom, President of WSI, will welcome the participants and present a brief account of the institute’s work in the past decade. An open discussion would be encouraged in the Q/A session.
The speaker session will be followed by a cultural reception including authentic Pakistani food and music.
Guests and attendees will also have the opportunity to register for WSI’s grassroots advocacy campaign. More information regarding the advocacy campaign will be released as developments take place.
