Ephraim Wolfe. Wolfe, 15, was one individual shot in a series of racially motivated attacks that left two men dead and nine others wounded. Instead of allowing fear to consume him, Wolfe found a renewed pride in his faith.
Megan Miller. As a student at Concord-Carlisle High School in Boston, Miller organized a summit called Across the Lines, which attempted to represent the diverse population within her school and increase awareness concerning prejudice, stereotyping, inequality and injustice. The relative success of the first summit provided the basis for the second which had double the number of attendance as the first.
Romaine Patterson. In response to anti-homosexual demonstrations by the Reverend Fred Phelps at the memorial service of a murdered friend, Patterson organized a silent counter protest known as Angel Action. This protest against intolerance involved Patterson and others using bed sheets to create a circle of “wings” to block Phelps and his demonstrators from being seen.
Chuenee Sampson. Following the Crown Heights Riots, Sampson participated in the ADL’s student leaders program. Following this training, she founded Students Against Violence Everywhere, a program designed to teach students about diversity and non-violent conflict resolution.
