The famed Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, where historical discovery meets social justice, is featuring the One Million Bones challenge through two days of interactive events, learning, and bone-making: October 14 and 15.
Our exciting day of public events (October 14) will feature actress Annabeth Gish, bone-making workshops with the ThinkPeace Girls, a gallery walk and inspiring presentations from partners who are making a difference in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia. It’s an opportunity to connect, learn and take action at a unique and inspiring venue – and meet some of the faces behind the scenes.
And, if you’re a student in the local area, your class may be eligible to participate in a special day for students on Monday, October 15. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
