Salem Award Foundation 25th Anniversary Kick-off
January 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
The Salem Award Foundation for Human Rights and Social Justice is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017 and invites you to help kick-off its year- long celebration.
Bring a friend, play some non-trivial trivia and write a six-word memoir as local celebrities read their own.
As part of our anniversary year, the SAF will recognize award-winning singer, songwriter John Legend as the inaugural Salem Advocate for Social justice, coordinate with Salem State University “Salem Trials” a symposium on witch trials, and host a community-wide celebration.
In addition, the SAF will launch a six-word memoir project: “Your Six Words, Our One Story.” Throughout the year we’ll be collecting these simple testimonies of inclusion to showcase the diversity and strength of our community.
Hope to see you on the 29th and throughout the year!
