15th annual Change Your World Celebration

September 21 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, builder and home of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, is pleased to announce the 15th annual Change Your World Celebration scheduled for Friday, September 21, 2018, in the Riverside Hotel Grand Ballroom, downtown Boise. The Celebration serves as the Center’s signature event and has a reputation as one of the most dynamic cultural events in the community. Past events featured Holocaust Survivors Gerda Weissmann Klein and Eva Kor, Lost Boy of Sudan John Bul Dau, International Rotarian and Humanitarian Dr. Linda Ricketts, author Clifton Taulbert, and the “Boys from Mozambique” Kelvin Lewis and Afonso Slater.  We hope to build on this tradition of tremendous success by creating another unforgettable night with featured educator Greg Forbes Siegman.

 

Two months into his career as an educator, Greg witnessed a moment of conflict at a restaurant. Determined to be more than a bystander, he started a weekly brunch program to increase dialogue in his community. Over 700 of his students and neighbors participated in the program. At 25, he expanded his ventures and began raising funds to help the students fulfill their academic dreams. Those efforts have continued for nearly 20 years. Along the way, he has continued to teach in different settings — serving as Scholar-in-Residence or guest lecturer for a variety of schools and programs. He has received honors such as the Jefferson Award for Public Service and has been featured by media like Good Morning America. His story serves as the basis for The Silhouette Man. The student edition (The First Thirty) was NSDLC Multicultural Relations Book of the Year. His website is www.GregForbes.com.

 

Proceeds from this important evening guarantee our program success each year and advance our statewide mission of promoting respect for human dignity through education. Although we continue to serve the community and thousands of school children through free tours at the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial and with our K-12 human rights curriculum, our work cannot stop there. As a voice for human rights, we are proud of our accomplishments and anxious to develop innovative programs for delivering human rights education to every corner of the state.  New projects include the expansion of human rights programming in the Center’s online classroom.

 

Join us for the no-host reception, silent and live auction, dinner and program with keynote.

Individual ticket: $100 (open seating)

Reserved table for ten: $1250 corporate sponsor; $1,000 non-profit rate
