In light of the changing world around us, Galloway has reinvigorated its Holocaust Education/Genocide Prevention Awareness Curriculum and invited Carl Wilkens, author and educator, to engage with students. Wilkens founded the nonprofit organization “World Outside My Shoes” and works to inspire change in the world by rejecting racism and genocide and promoting diversity, pluralism, and mutual respect for all. Galloway teachers have crafted age-appropriate lessons and presentations to make the most of Wilkens’ time at Galloway.
Carl Wilkens’ visit culminates with a special, community-wide event where he will speak about his experience as the only American who stayed and lived through the Rwandan genocide. He will share a short film and stories and lead conversations about how respect leads to empathy and inclusion.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Please invite your friends and reserve your spot below to hear this incredible speaker.
This event is part of Galloway’s ongoing Holocaust Education/Genocide Prevention Awareness Curriculum. Thank you to the AJC - Global Jewish Advocacy for co-hosting this event.
