Kids at Hope, in partnership with Arizona State University's Center for the Advanced Study and Practice of Hope, is keeping hope at the forefront of our minds with their Hope Forums - the next two coming up on April 1st and 8th!
On April 1st, founder Rick Miller will be joined by:
Special Guest: Erin Gruwell, an American teacher known for her unique teaching method, which led to the publication of New York Times bestselling book, The Freedom Writers Diary: How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them. Erin’s experience inspired the major motion picture, Freedom Writers starring Academy Award winner Hilary Swank portraying Erin.
And on April 8th,
Special Guests: David and Danny Diaz will be the HOPE Forum guests as we examine how an entire community rallied around its youth when no one gave them a chance. The Diaz family, their coach Jim White and the McFarland, CA community inspired the Disney film McFarland USA starring Kevin Costner.
