The Generations After, Inc.

Shoah Survivors & Descendants of Greater Washington, DC

Speakers’ Bureau

Several years ago, we held our first Speakers’ Bureau Workshop. The purpose was to train our members (specifically 2nd and 3rd generation members) to speak at local schools and media and community events.  Many out-of-town guests attended, with a special contingent from Philadelphia. Due to high interest, a subsequent workshop was held in Baltimore. These were intended to be the first in a series of workshops.  We have now resumed an expanded training program with ongoing sessions.  To join the Speakers’ Bureau meetings and trainings, email: generationafterdc@gmail.com.
