It’s a new year and we’re excited to be sharing it with you.
We’ve been busy the past few weeks finalizing plans for January and February and already we have over 15 events scheduled in January alone. February is shaping up to be just as incredible although with fewer engagements but larger events.
This month 5th grade teachers in the Jordan River and Salt Lake City school districts are receiving a free She Stood For Freedom curriculum package. Over 10,000 students will be learning about Joan Trumpauer Mulholland and the Civil Rights Movement. We are looking forward to working more districts in Utah with this pilot program. This is all possible because of your generous donations and we are thankful for your support.
On January 10th, the Orem City Library will be hosting a screening of the award-winning film, “The Uncomfortable Truth” and on the 26th it will be at the Denton Black Film Festival. Loki Mulholland will be attending both screenings and right after the screening in Denton, TX he will head straight to the Region 4 Conference in Houston where he will be leading a session.
Work has begun on a new illustrated children’s book to be released in 2019 and a new documentary about racism through the lens of transracial adoptions. In addition, this year the foundation is working on a special podcast series that will take the award-winning film, “An Ordinary Hero” and put it on steroids. There’s so much that you didn’t hear in that film that will be revealed via the podcast. That will also be coming out in 2019.
We look forward to seeing many of you throughout this new year.
