16th Annual Day of Learning
Sunday, March 4, 2018

At the Day of Learning, students (grades 7-12) and educators from all public and private schools throughout California are invited to gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide in order to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in the future.

Registration will open in the beginning of February. Be sure to check back for more information!
