Watch: Courage to Care Exhibition Preview
Courage to Care is
A volunteer-based not for profit organisation that empowers individuals to stand up against prejudice and discrimination.
A social acceptance and upstander education program delivered in classrooms and workplaces, or in conjunction with a travelling exhibition.
Courage to Care is a celebration of people who chose to stand up and confront discrimination and injustice – ordinary people who were extraordinary in their bravery and impact.
It is a positive program which uses examples from the past to plant the seeds of awareness, understanding and empathy for others.
Using Holocaust survivors’ stories of their rescue as an example, the program educates visitors towards an understanding of the roles of victim, perpetrator and bystander.
Participants are empowered to take positive action against discrimination in all forms – not to be bystanders, but to make a difference whenever possible.
