Listening for a Change
Phyllis Rosenfield is the founder and Executive Director/President of Listening for a Change whose Mission is to promote understanding and acceptance of human diversity through education, oral history, and the arts.
Growing up in the segregated South, Phyllis experienced the damaging effects of segregation. She also lost family in the Shoah/Holocaust. These experiences helped form her desire to work toward acceptance, understanding, and justice for all people.
A teacher by profession, with a Masters in Equity & Social Justice, Phyllis was the co-creator in 1991 of the Sonoma County Survivor Project. Lessons learned from this endeavor led to the concept of dispelling otherness. All Listening for a Change school, community, and business programs are built on this foundation.
In her own words – We simply don’t have enough opportunities in life to bridge misunderstanding, honor another person’s story, and come to a deeper understanding and acceptance of other people. Helping create these opportunities is the work of Listening for a Change.
Please join us on December 14th for this powerful presentation.
