Through programming and training, Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) strives to provide a platform for all silenced voices to be heard through education, dialogue and testimony. We recognize and commend the tremendous efforts being put forth by No Silence on Race to connect individuals and community organizations to further these important conversations. These efforts must be consistent, ongoing, and open to all members of the community regardless of ethnic, racial, religious, gender or sexual identity.
FSWC commits to continuing engagement in these, often, difficult conversations; building bridges between organizations to strengthen our collective efforts; expanding our programming to include more voices from indigenous and BIPOC communities; and continuing to speak out against intolerance and hate in all of its forms.
FSWC is dedicated to continuing to work together to bring about positive, meaningful change in an effort to strive for equity and inclusion for all.
