The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance (GCLT) will host a lecture and a discussion with the Rev. Gavin Rogers on Border Crossings: Lessons from the Migrant Caravan.

In 2012 Rev. Rogers spent several weeks living on the streets surrounding Travis Park as part of his church’s vision to include some of San Antonio’s most vulnerable populations in the congregation’s weekly life. To help him gain a better understanding of this complex humanitarian crisis, he joined the migrant caravan in Mexico City for five days on their journey to the U.S. border in November 2018. Since the end of March, Travis Park Church has been a staging location in San Antonio for more than 15,000 migrants who have legally entered the U.S. At our event, Rev. Rogers will be exploring the lessons he has taken from these experiences.

The GCLT is honored to partner with the Pikes Peak Library District on this community program in conjunction with this year’s All Pikes Peak Reads selection of TransAtlantic by Colum McCann. Numerous local organizations will host informational tables at the event for attendees who are interested in supporting the immigrant community here in Colorado Springs.

This program is free and open to the public. Advanced tickets can be reserved online here.

Invisible: Surviving the Cambodian Genocide

Cambodian genocide survivors Mac and Simone Leng share their story as told in their memoir Invisible: Surviving the Cambodian Genocide by Dr. Frances T. Pilch.

Read more about Mac and Simone Leng in an article appearing in the Pueblo Chieftain.

About the Book:

The Cambodian Genocide claimed the lives of an estimated two million people - more than one-fourth of the total Cambodian population. Under the brutal regime of the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, cities were evacuated and the population dispersed and forced into labor camps, where scores died of starvation, malnutrition, and disease. Pol Pot targeted for extermination certain minorities, the educated, and all those who had any connection with the former regime. Cambodia was to return to the "Year Zero," a pre-history - where no hint of Western influence would exist. Because Mac Leng was a former school principal and an army intelligence officer under the Lon Nol regime, he had a double target on his back. Mac and Simone Leng survived almost unendurable conditions for three years, eight months, and twenty days. This is their heartrending story of resilience, courage, and the power of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable terror.


About the Author:

Dr. Frances T. Pilch is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the United States Air Force Academy, where she served on the faculty for 17 years. She was awarded her B.A. from the University of Connecticut and her M.A. and Ph.D. in International Relations from Yale University. At the Air Force Academy she developed and taught a course titled “War Crimes, Genocide, and Human Rights.” Her areas of expertise are International Law and Gender Violence. In fall 2017 she was a Visiting Lecturer in Political Science at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She has served as a Fulbright-Hays Scholar in South Africa and a Fulbright Scholar in Mongolia, where she taught International Law at the School of Diplomacy, National University of Mongolia, in Ulaanbaatar.

PowerPass

Knowledge is power. Unlock your potential!

Pikes Peak Library District and Colorado Springs School District 11 have partnered up to create PowerPass, giving students access to research and homework help, academic databases, college application and job search assistance, makerspaces, and more!



How did anyone ever get through school before the internet?

It’s a question students in District 11 will certainly not need to answer this year! As of the 2019-2020 school year, every student in D11 has a PowerPass, a digital PPLD card. The PowerPass gives students access to PPLD’s digital resources, like databases, eBooks, and song and movie downloads, all available at ppld.org. Each PowerPass holder can also check out five physical items at a time from any of the 14 PPLD locations or mobile library services!


High school and middle school students can use their PowerPass for online access to live tutors and online foreign language courses. They can also get help with projects and prepare for the future with practice driving and SAT tests.


Elementary students and their parents will benefit from kid-friendly eBook and audiobook access, digital education resources, and in-person classes at PPLD to learn how to write, draw, code, or use
makerspace equipment.


What you need to know about the student account :

  1. The student will have an e-card (i.e. not a physical card)
  2. The student card # will be the first five letters of their last name (fewer if the last name has less than five letters) followed by the initials of their first and middle names (if they have a middle name) and then the last four number of their student ID. Ex (John Jacob Jingleheimer student ID 12345678 – id would beJINGLJJ5678)
  3. Student PINs will be the two-digit month and day of their birthdate (ex, 0731)
  4. Student cards will have the profile of STUDENT
  5. Students are allowed to check out five items and have five holds at a time. However Interlibrary Loans are not permitted on the student accounts.
  6. Student accounts can access CyberShelf and Research resources as well as PCs in the libraries.
  7. Student accounts are blocked at $10 which prevents further checkouts of physical materials and use of OverDrive.
  8. Students can use the self-checkouts’ on-screen keyboard to enter their account IDs and PINs. The onscreen keyboard now displays letters and numbers.

If a parent does not wish for their child to use PowerPass, they may opt out at the child's school.
