For over two decades, the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights has proudly served Idaho educators and students. The scope of our programming, resources, and services has grown dramatically. Now it is time to look to the future. And the future is bright. Exploring new ways to better serve Idaho’s classrooms and communities — and meet the demand — our resources, technology and facilities must grow too. We look forward to bringing all aspects of daily operation and programming into one comprehensive education center.

When the founders of a proposed human rights memorial in Boise, Idaho, first created a 501(c)3 nonprofit education center in 1996, they could not have imagined the long-term impact of their efforts. The combined presence of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial and the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights is a resounding statement in the value of “promoting respect for human dignity and diversity through education.”
Watch the celebration we hosted and the ceremonial groundbreaking of the new Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, coming in 2022 – with land acknowledgment and ground blessing conducted by descendants of the original Boise Valley People.
