For 20 years, teachers have trusted MY HERO as a safe, curated and family friendly Internet oasis, shining a light on everyday heroes working to create positive change in the world. This month, the nonprofit is celebrating two decades of inspiration with a live multimedia festival featuring stories, art, music and film. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, Giive‘s got your ticket to the party!
Writers, musicians, artists and heroes will command the stage at the Ann and Jerry Moss Theater (New Roads School) in Santa Monica on Nov. 21. Among the expected attendees are: Author and educator Erin Gruwell, founder of The Freedom Writers Foundation; Peace Activist Ron Kovic, author of Born on the Fourth of July; Activist Kathy Eldon; Artist Robert Shetterly; and Reggae musician Pato Banton, who will be performing live.
There will also be short film screenings, live musical performances and award presentations.
It was three moms — Jeanne Meyers, Rita Stern Milch and Karen Pritzker — who formed the nonprofit web project MY HERO in August of 1995, with the idea of using media, art and technology to promote global understanding, life-long learning, human rights, environmental education and more. Today, MY HERO is used by millions of teachers, parents and students in more than 194 countries.
