The Importance of Joining the Butterfly Project

People visit the Holocaust Museum Houston and ask themselves, “How could this have happened?” How did so many people sit silently while their neighbors were targeted, taunted and taken away?

Could it happen again?

The Butterfly Project’s goal is to make sure it does not. And it starts with you: When you see a wrong being done, it is your duty to right it. It is your duty to be an upstander.
