The “Living the Legacy” Memorial Expansion
We’re branching out. And you can help!
The Living the Legacy Phase One enhancement, the Rose Beal Legacy Garden and planting bed for the Anne Frank chestnut tree sapling, was publicly dedicated on October 24, 2014 following the successful completion of a six-month $100,000 campaign to fund construction. The Phase Two Memorial enhancement is the construction of an outdoor community classroom to sit between the Log Cabin and the Memorial Amphitheater.
Designed as a technology-rich public space, the outdoor community classroom will house the “History of Human Rights in Idaho,” a comprehensive multimedia project that showcases how Idaho’s modern history began out of a mix of many different cultures, traditions, ethnic backgrounds, and perspectives. In addition to providing a covered structure with permanent seating to launch and conclude Memorial tours, the open-to-the-public community classroom will be used for lunch-time brown bag presentations, summer evening films, the Center’s Human Rights Book Club, and as shared youth education programming space with the Boise City Public Library and the Log Cabin.
Help us bring the Memorial Expansion to life – and share its message statewide.
The Center’s education work reflects the initial charter that guided Memorial creation–the most effective way to foster positive social change is to prepare youth to be responsible stewards of human rights. The primary constituency for the Center’s education programs is K-12 students and teachers across Idaho.
