THE STORY:

SEE MY WEBSITE FOR MORE INFO:  http://pilgrimspurpose.weebly.com

Beginning in the first week in September 2014, I and three of my four children will begin a 500 mile walk along the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain -- an ancient Christian pilgrimage route. Aside from my personal reasons for making this pilgrimage, I decided to draw from my past experience and create a “Camino Walkathon” to benefit 3 charities which are important to me. This Crowdrise site is specifically for the Southern Poverty Law Center Teaching Tolerance Project.

The SPLC’s Teaching Tolerance program works through educators to nurture a new generation that is more accepting of difference and more engaged in social justice than those that preceded it. We want kids to get along with each other and, just as important, see themselves as global citizens in a diverse society with the capacity to work together for a fairer world.

Morris Dees, the founder of SPLC, inspired me to become an attorney.  I met him last in Austin when he introduced Gerda Weissmann Klein, the subject of the powerful documentary and Teaching Tolerance educational kit One Survivor Remembers. Educational kits like this one are regularly made available free of charge to educators.  Since 2005, the Teaching Tolerance Project distributed more than 130,000 copies of this film to schools and youth organizations in the US.
