Dear Friends

Hate, intolerance, and discrimination are surging in the United States. The only way to reverse this frightening tide and to create a more benevolent world is through dialogue, learning, understanding, and acceptance.

Recently, a CNN advertisement read, "When the world cries . . ." What happens when we cry? Do we think that "someone needs to do something"? We are the "someone," and the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance (GCLT) provides the "something." Since 2003, residents in the Pikes Peak region have attended GCLT's transformative events honoring the cultural dignity of all humanity. Over the past 14 years, we've presented programs on the Holocaust, human trafficking, genocide in Darfur, the power of forgiveness, the rights of Native Americans, and standing against terrorism across the world. Last year we focused on the American justice system, beginning with a community symposium on prison reform, featuring Rep. Pete Lee, District Attorney Dan May, and Christie Donner of the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition, and we brought in Shaka Senghor to talk about prison reform.

In April 2017, Morris Dees, founder of The Southern Poverty Law Center, attracted more than 1,000 people to hear him speak about hate in America. This remarkable event was made possible by your donations to the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance.


Our presentations have touched over a million people. With your help, we'll continue to bring thought-provoking programs to you and our community. Please consider a donation that will allow us to offer educational and enlightening programs that are available to everyone in our region.
