Never Again...Again?

Never Again...Again?

Never Again. These words have been repeated in the decades following the Holocaust, enforcing the hope that we learn from our tragic history. And yet, genocide has been a part of our world since long before the Holocaust and continues to happen across the globe. Please join us to hear from women directly impacted by genocide, the Armenian and the Rwandan, and to discuss how we attempt to prevent this heartbreaking repetition of history. Hosted by Macy Miller, this amazing, teen-led event is sure to re-educate you on the dangers of present-day genocide.
