Commitment by

Jay T. Snyder, Open Hands Initiative

In 2010, The Open Hands Initiative (OHI) committed to promoting people-to-people understanding and dialogue between the United States and the Arab and Muslim world. The Initiative will pursue this goal by bringing together youth disability self-advocates from the United States and Syriawho could create the world's first cross-cultural superhero with disabilities. The comic series will eventually feature superheroes representing marginalized groups from South Asia or the Middle East.
