The Mobile Museum of Tolerance is in C-U today

From the press release: 

“The Mobile Museum of Tolerance is the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s newest educational initiative, bringing world-class learning experiences to communities across the state of Illinois. The purpose of the MMOT is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds, empowering them to raise their voices and combat anti-Semitism, bullying, racism, hate, and intolerance and to promote human dignity.”

Hillel at the University of Illinois and Organic Oneness collaborated to bring the museum to the University of Illinois. The museum will present six workshops throughout the day for small groups of students, focused on the Civil Rights Movement and the Holocaust.
