“How great it is that no one need wait a single
moment to start to improve the world.” – Anne Frank
Your support has enabled us to embrace each moment of 2017 as an opportunity to make a difference. Please consider making a year-end gift to help our critical work continue.
In 2017, we engaged with thousands of individuals from schools to community organizations providing Holocaust, human rights, social justice, and Jewish educational experiences. Through social media, blogs, and editorials, our writings have reached individuals far beyond our city and state.
- On April 21st, we will host the First Annual Arts and Advocacy Conference on Immigration at Queens University in partnership with ten community organizations. From keynote addresses to sessions highlighting the arts as a tool for advocacy to an evening multicultural festival with live music and food trucks, we hope to draw hundreds of Charlotteans to this important work.
Our advocacy networks will be addressing issues of racial justice and immigration.
Our staff will be in regional schools leading Holocaust and human rights workshops for hundreds of middle and high school students.
We will offer ten Holocaust and human rights teacher workshops bringing in experts from Facing History and Ourselves, Echoes & Reflections, and Yad Vashem.
Our Jewish Studies program will offer half a dozen courses including a Preserving Memory in the Digital Age course with an accompanying cemetery restoration project in Poland in partnership with UNC-Charlotte.
Jewish Life/Hillel at Queens will continue to create a vibrant Jewish community and lift the multicultural experiences on campus.
