At the 2019 Tribute to Change, we honored leaders and community groups who inspire our movements by offering compelling, positive alternatives to unjust systems.
The Tribute to Change was held at the National Museum of American Jewish History on October 17, 2019.
There are lots of fun things to explore from the evening’s festivities:
- Look at the beautiful photos of the event captured by photographer Hanbit Kwon.
- Check out the photos and gifs from the photobooth.
- Listen to the Cultivating New Futures playlist made by our own DJ legiNdary.
- Watch this video highlighting the honorees and their work:
We also invite you to dig deeper into the Cultivating New Futures theme by exploring our collection of books, podcasts, music, and other media that inspire us to build new worlds.
