As we reflect on the legacy of Dr. King, I am pleased to share that The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education will host an evening with World War II liberator and civil rights activist, Dr. Leon Bass on Tuesday, February 26, 6:00 p.m. at The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Dr. Bass will discuss his experience as a liberator and his dedication to fighting racism and prejudice, wherever it exists.
 
At age nineteen, Dr. Bass help to liberated Buchenwald concentration camp. He saw the horrors of the Holocaust while also serving in a segregated military. After the war, Bass went on to receive his doctorate from Temple University and taught for many years in the Philadelphia school district. He has presented his story to audiences throughout the United States and across the world. To learn more about Dr. Bass, please visit http://drleonbass.com/

Link to watch the PFLAG Interview-

PFLAG Cincinnati is a local chapter of the national organization called PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians & Gays), the nation’s largest family-based group of its kind. PFLAG began in 1972, when a courageous mother marched with her gay son in New York City’s gay pride parade. Her single voice—calling on society to treat all of its citizens equally and with dignity—sparked a national movement. Since then, tens of thousands of ordinary Americans have joined forces as PFLAG. With its unique family voice and grassroots network, PFLAG is creating a safe and just world in ways nobody else can. On the national level and in more than 500 communities across America, we support one another, educate the public and advocate for equality. Just as one mother spoke out in 1972, we speak out today—united in our belief that love is stronger than fear, and that all our children are EQUAL.

Mission Statement

Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays promotes the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, their families and friends through
• support, to cope with an adverse society,
• education, to enlighten an ill-informed public, and
• advocacy, to end discrimination and secure civil rights.
