"The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance tells stories that are normally untold. This is an act that resonates deeply with us, as an immigrant-refugee couple. We were honored and privileged to work with the Greenberg Center to tell our story about becoming Americans. We believe that supporting the Greenberg Center is integral to helping others see, understand, and respect the richness of culture in our community."

"In the midst of divisive discourse, The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance presents stories that give us hope for a future of peace and civility."

"The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance is a treasure in the Pikes Peak region, as they are one of few longtime institutions committed to conversations and programs that advance our quest to be a multi-cultural and inclusive society. As a former tenured professor of UCCS, my students have gained access to speakers, artists, and perspectives not traditionally available to them through the work of the Greenberg Center and its board members. I am grateful for the collaborations that I have been able to engage with them on and hope that they will continue to be a supported asset to the community at large for generations to come."

"Being invited for the Red Horizon documentary screening, hosted by the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance was truly a treat! The screening presented a grand opportunity to highlight and to share the great work that is being done by the Red Tail Flight Academy in Tuskegee, Alabama. In addition to increasing awareness of the "new generation of Tuskegee Airmen," the screening served as a vessel for so many meaningful networking opportunities. We felt completely embraced by the board member's hospitality and truly enjoyed our stay in Colorado!"

Warmest Regards,

"Thanks to the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance for bringing the Red Horizon movie to Colorado Springs.
This movie inspired me to work hard and to push for my dreams no matter how slim of a chance they seem. Along with motivation this film gave me a new perspective on the unfortunate roll that race plays in the pursuit of one's dream. It gave me a new-found respect for those of other ethnicities/races who work just that much harder to accomplish their dreams. The story of the Tuskegee Airmen touched my heart and has called me to help fight the racial prejudices that still exist in our society today. I hope that everyone can see this movie and take away all of its messages as they are so valuable in many ways."

Nolan Hollis, 17 years old

"It was my pleasure to serve on the original board and to help create some of the early programs. From the very beginning the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance has recognized the power of working with both local and national organizations to bring in quality programs. The center has focused on important and difficult topics from Remembering the Holocaust to Genocide. Another powerful program featured prison reform. Empowered Passion, Stand Up and Be Counted 1871-2009 featured Colorado Springs residents who have made a difference.

Although I am no longer a board member, I attend all their programs. This is a nonprofit that has demonstrated their ability to offer quality programming. Please visit their website to review the depth of programing and seriously consider including the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance in your donations in the Colorado Gives program."

"Over the past several years, I have attended multiple programs and exhibits sponsored by the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance. The programs and exhibits have always been excellent and very enlightening. They have inspired me to learn more about other cultures and crucial societal issues, particularly the programs highlighting human trafficking and refugees living in Colorado Springs. Programs have covered many cultures over the years, educating the public about injustices and hatred, and providing a venue for promoting learning, understanding, and tolerance."

Kate Raphael

"After I moved to Colorado Springs in 2005, I was absolutely thrilled to learn there was an organization dedicated to creating awareness and understanding of important social causes.
That was the beginning of my long and passionate involvement as a board member with The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance (GCLT)...


The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance promotes learning, understanding, and acceptance that honors the cultural dignity of all humanity.

Background Statement

A History of The Greenberg Center

The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance was founded in November of 2003 when Dr. David and Paulette Greenberg were presented with the Temple Shalom Humanitarian Award. In recognition of their award, the Greenberg Center was established to promote learning, understanding and acceptance that honors the cultural dignity of all mankind.

Here are some of the programs that the organization brought to the Colorado Springs Community:

*Rev. Gavin Rogers to speak on Border Crossings: Lessons From the Migrant Caravan

On September 24th, 2019, the Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance (GCLT) hosted a lecture and a discussion with the Rev. Gavin Rogers on Border Crossings: Lessons from the Migrant Caravan. The tragic events at the Walmart in El Paso, TX, the arrest of hundreds of immigrant workers in Mississippi, and the controversy surrounding the famous Emma Lazarus poem on the Statue of Liberty, all highlight the need to have a thoughtful conversation about migration, refugees, and immigrants' contributions to this country.

*Big Sonia :Hosted and Sponsored by Colorado College Hillel and The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance in partnership with Temple Shalom and First Christian Church. May 5th 2019.

Big Sonia is a 2016 award-winning documentary film about the life of Sonia Warshawski, a 94-year old survivor of the concentration camps at Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Sonia experienced unspeakable horror as a teenager growing up in Poland during the Nazi occupation. She is also a great-grandmother, tenacious businesswoman, and a 4'8″ diva with a BIG personality. This film is a poignant story of generational trauma and healing with moments of humor and humanity that demonstrate the power of love to triumph over bigotry and the power of truth telling to heal us all.

*Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison featuring SHAKA SENGHOR

October 6th, 2016

Best-Selling Author and Activist On Mass Incarceration and Prison Reform

"If I can get one kid to put down a gun, then sharing my painful story is worth it"
