Crafted by Leslie Lewis and co-creator Edward Vilga, with an uplifting message of forgiveness and compassion, MIRACLE IN RWANDA chronicles these dramatic events through the interior life of Immaculée. The message is one of personal empowerment, of overcoming all obstacles through the power of faith and ultimately finding peace of mind amidst unbelievable hardship. Often called “our generation’s Anne Frank”—yet one who thankfully survived—the true miracle of Immaculée’s story is her ability to forgive.
7.45-8.45PM | CLE
A 1-credit CLE (skills, transitional and non-transitional) on working with survivors of trauma in an immigration context by Claire R. Thomas, Director of Training, Safe Passage Project and Adjunct Professor, New York Law School.
As this is a fundraiser and performance, if we don't issue 100 tickets we will not host the performance.
