“Standing up and speaking out for what you believe in takes courage,” said the Maltz Museum’s Managing Director, David Schafer. “We applaud the students, educators, and activists who are marching for their lives.”
The Maltz Museum is known for supporting students as upstanders and activists. This year marks the Museum’s 10th anniversary of Stop the Hate Youth Speak Out® and Youth Sing Out, in which students and schools are awarded $100,000 annually in college scholarships and anti-bias training grants for their winning essays and original songs. By challenging young people to consider the benefits of a more inclusive society, the consequences of intolerance and the role of personal responsibility in effecting change, the Maltz Museum’s contest also reflects Jewish values of responsible citizenship and respect for all humanity.
The Maltz Museum welcomes all students and educators for free on Saturday, March 24, during open hours (11am–5pm), with special screening of a short Stop the Hate® film chronicling the impact of unchecked hate and violence. The film will be shown in intervals throughout the day.
