Postponing the Stop the Hate Award Ceremony

After great debate and discussion, the difficult decision has been made to postpone the Stop the Hate Award Ceremony until later in the academic year. The health and safety of participants is our first priority. As part of the international effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Maltz Museum will schedule a new date following CDC guidelines. Our goal is to safely bring finalists and judges together for a private event that can be shared with a public audience via livestream. We will keep you updated with the most current information as it develops. Thank you for your patience as we navigate next steps. We look forward to connecting with you soon.

For more information, please contact Manager of Public Programs & Stop the Hate, Ben Becker: bbecker@mmjh.org or 216-593-0577
