In the News…
Schools and communities are often in the news for their partnership with The Butterfly Project. If your organization is involved in any news or media coverage about your involvement with our mission, we kindly request that you include the following in the story:
- How we began: The Butterfly Project was founded in San Diego in 2006 by artist Cheryl Rattner Price and educator Jan Landau.
- Our mission: The Butterfly Project is a call to action through education, the arts and memorial making. We teach social justice through lessons of the Holocaust, educating participants about the dangers of hatred and bigotry to cultivate empathy and social responsibility. By painting ceramic butterflies, which are displayed as symbols of resilience and hope, participants remember the 1.5 million children killed during the Holocaust. In this work, The Butterfly Project honors our commitment to the Survivors to Never Forget.
- Current number of butterflies counted: As of March 2022, it is estimated that over 295,000 butterflies have been painted as part of The Butterfly Project worldwide.
