Last year, Wasi Mohamed and the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh were named Pittsburghers of Year by the Pittsburgh City Paper for their generosity and message of unity following the Tree of Life shooting. Now Mohamed, who serves as executive director of the center, will be honored with the 2019 New Person of the Year Award by the Thomas Merton Center, which works to create a more peaceful and just world by addressing war, poverty, racism, classism, economic and environmental justice, and human rights. The award ceremony will take place at the National Association of Letter Carriers Hall.
