Righteous Conversations

The Righteous Conversations Project brings Holocaust survivors and teens together. The survivors share their stories of resiliency, courage and resistance. In turn, the teens create powerful short films and Public Service Announcements from the stories. Within the testimony by those who have survived genocide, the students grapple with understanding that so much of what the survivors have to say applies to the travesties in the world today.

By Sr. Executive Producer - Kelly Flynn, Segment Producer/Director - Luke Wiles, Editor -Mike Denny

CNN Heroes uses the power of media and technology to highlight and support those making a positive change in the world. CNN HERO of the Year: Robin Lim is the founder of Bumi Sehat, a non-profit, village-based organization that runs two community health centers in Bali and Aceh, Indonesia. They provide health care for both children and adults and Midwifery services to ensure gentle births welcoming approximately 600 new babies into the world each year.

"981 mothers in the prime of their lives are dying from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Supporting your Midwife to Mother care is the answer, because Midwives are the bridge on which mothers may walk upon to cross over into Motherhood, Safely." I also said: "Every Mother Counts and Healthcare is a Human right."
