As We Dwell School – Justice Rising
January 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
So much happens in a year and as we transition into our second year, we will be launching a new campaign in collaboration with Justice Rising. Let’s celebrate, build, and impact together.
Justice Rising is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) organization that exists to transform war zones through education. They believe that every child has a right to a quality education, and that education is one of the most effective tools for transforming places of conflict and combating extremist ideology.
Since 2010, Justice Rising has worked to support communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country that has seen over 5.4 million people killed over the past 20 years. They currently operate seven schools serving over 1,400 students annually. Over the next five years, they aim to build 40 schools in other war affected communities.
Join us in helping us build an As We Dwell school in one of these war zone countries. We believe when two or more are gathered, we will rise above any circumstances and bring transformative change! Your presence and support on this day will be the start of the building process of the As We Dwell school. Our night will be filled with free goodies, delicious food and drinks, shopping experience, musical performance by Winter River, haiku poems by the Haiku Guys+Gals, and more! Stay tuned for more details and partnerships!
“It’s so incredible when people come together with their skills, creativity and passions to stand for children living in war zones. Can’t wait to see the lives transformed with the ‘As We Dwell’ school!” – Cassandra Lee, Justice Rising Co-Founder, President
