Dedication of the Marilyn Shuler Classroom for Human Rights

September 20 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

Share in the excitement as the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial expands with the addition of the Marilyn Shuler Classroom for Human Rights.  Marilyn Shuler, co-founder of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial and board member of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, was a longtime human rights leader and advocate in Idaho. Her many accomplishments and service included a 20-year career as director of the Idaho Commission on Human Rights from 1978-1998. In response to the Aryan Nations, a white supremacy group originally based in northern Idaho, the six-state Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment was created in 1987 with Marilyn as a founding member.  Its purpose was to end harassment and violence by stopping individual and organized bigotry.  Governor Cecil Andrus recognized Marilyn as Idaho’s “moral compass” and praised her as a “champion for human rights and basic decency.”

The dedication begins at 11:45 a.m. in the Anne Frank Amphitheater in front of the Anne Frank statue; the program includes a special presentation as a call to take action in honoring Marilyn’s legacy.  A formal ribbon cutting will officially open the classroom at noon.  Memorial docents will be on hand from noon to 1:00 p.m. to explain and demonstrate the new features installed in and surrounding the Classroom.
