Thank you for visiting our website

We look forward to continuing our work throughout this year and next. Please click on any of the tabs above to see videos, read students’ reactions and learn more about us and our supporters.

This school year, we hosted eight Remembrance Journeys to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, and we are very excited that in just a couple of weeks we will be holding our annual Youth Leadership Seminar. Each year we invite those students who joined us on our Remembrance Journeys to reconnect and meet other students.

The one day event will include guest speakers including a child Holocaust survivor, Sami Steigmann, who was born during the Holocaust in a prison camp. The day will also feature student group activities, and student presentations. The focus is to provide students with a forum for exchange of ideas and an opportunity to positively reflect on and share what they have learned from the Remembrance Journeys and what they have put into practice since.

If you would like to see some highlights from last year’s Youth Leadership Seminar, please click on the following link: 2015 Youth Leadership Seminar.

We invite you to visit here again in June where we will post updates on this exciting event!

In these times, when so many are trying to exploit our differences rather than develop our commonalties, our work to teach "radical tolerance" and to be an Upstander is more important than ever. Please explore our pages to see what we do. If you would like to help us continue our work, and make a contribution, just click here to: Make a Donation, or on the Donation tab above. Each contribution, large or small, enables us to impact more students in positive ways.

In peace,
