ChangeMakers is an educational association which advocates for equity, equality and mutual respect in a multi-racial, multi-cultural and diverse society, by addressing racism, bigotry and intolerance whether on a social, political or systematic level. Its objective is to:
- Document, acknowledge and honor past lessons of those who lived under, persevered through, and fought against, racism, segregation and intolerance.
- Create open dialogues to focus on ways to build trust and heal the wounds from the past, where we are on a societal level and where we need to go; “calling-out” current examples of racism and intolerance, as well as identifying success stories.
- Have a broader impact and be a catalyst for change to progress in the future, by encouraging participation from the community, with special outreach to youth and students.
On Wednesday, July 15, 6–7:30 p.m., join ChangeMakers for an informative meeting and discussion on racism, bigotry, and injustice in Monrovia’s community. Dr. Wen Chen, of Cal Tech, will discuss human rights in China and North Korea.
