This week, WFYI's All Things Considered host Matt Pelsor is speaking with people who work to foster change in our region.

After his family was murdered in the Rwandan Genocide, Kizito "Z" Kalima found solace in sports, which is what eventually brought him to the United States, where he was diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder.

Kalima tells WFYI's Pelsor his talk therapy transformed into advocacy when he learned about Eva Kor and her forgiveness philosophy.
