In town for the anniversary, Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Ira Forman and Acting U.S. Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Arsalan Suleman participated in multiple awareness-building events in Rome. The envoys gave an interview to Vatican Radio, participated in a panel discussion at John Cabot University and met with Vatican officials.
