• In 2016, the Anne Frank Center became the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect to reflect our organization’s work on the civil and human rights issues of today. Our Executive Director, social justice leader Steven Goldstein, has brought on a team of other social justice leaders to take on the Trump Administration’s roll-back of civil and human rights. Our organization passionately opposes the President’s unconstitutional ban on Muslim refugees and his immigrant-bashing plans to build a wall on the Mexican border.

Meryl Streep stars in this video from the
Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect to mark
the 70th anniversary of the publication of Anne’s diary.

This video, “Never Again to Anyone,” explains the strategy
and impact of our organization’s uncommon boldness
in addressing civil and human rights across America.
