The Museum of Impact Visits TNS on Saturday, Dec 2

Museum of Impact

Our school will be working with the Museum of Impact to stage a unique social action exhibit celebrating upStanders in our community! Together we can raise our voices to combat hate speech, to support LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter, to make a significant impact on issues affecting every single one of us.

Action: Who are your upstanders - people who have inspired you to affect change? Post in the comments below and we will send in your suggestions to have the Museum of Impact create visual representation of our collective heroes.

This event is open to current families and friends and neighbors. Please share this event with the broader community.

I learned this weekend that jazz band leader Benny Goodman stood up for integration. The US was segregated when Goodman and other jazz performers took a stand and decided that what was important was the music, and musicians should play together regardless of the color of their skin. In his words: "If a guy's got it, let him give it. I'm selling music, not prejudice"

It would be great to include those who have fought for disability rights as this issue is often left out of conversations about social justice. Right here in New York City is Bernard Carabello who was instrumental in closing the Willowbrook State School on Staten Island in the 70s.
