Paz with brush stroke 2"Last year, in 7th grade, a kid drew a swastika in my journal. My teacher said, 'I don't know how to handle this.' That inspired me to search for a way to educate myself and to educate others."

Pazia was a member of the 2016-2017 Student Leadership Board.

Pia with brush stroke 2"Learning about the Holocaust, my students start making connections between what happened in the past and what's happening in our world today... and they understand that their actions impact everyone around them."

Pia Longinotti, Powell Fellow and teacher at Freeman High School in rural Spokane County

Carla and Elsa with brush stroke 2"Listening to [Carla] talk about what she went through and how she was able to help people just really inspired me to stand up against injustice." - Elsa, student at Freeman High School

Anna Archer with brush stroke 2"Carla's story is a testament to the fact that we are headed in the right direction, that I am a part of something greater than myself."
