Applications for the 2017 Richard and Roberta Handel Educator's Conference to Washington D.C. are now being accepted

Applications can be downloaded below:

Deadline is June 16, 2017

Open to any accredited secondary educator who is currently teaching in Western New York, the trip costs $50 with flight and hotel covered by the HRC and allows its participants to tour and receive educational materials from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, as well as the United States Institute for Peace. In doing so, it is hoped that each teacher will be more capable of helping their students connect the study of the Holocaust to the world today. The trip is led by New Generation Initiative staff members who have been trained by the USHMM.

The HRC is deeply grateful to Richard and Roberta Handel, whose generosity makes this trip possible.
