Day 2 with Layli Miller-Muro (Tahirih Justice Center) and Paul Asplund (Wayfarer Foundation)

Layli Miller-Muro is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Tahirih Justice Center, which provides free legal services and engages in advocacy on behalf of immigrant women and girls fleeing human rights abuses. In its 22nd year and with 5 cities across the United States, Tahirih has protected over 27,000 women and girls who courageously refuse to be victims of violence. Layli founded the organization in 1997 following her involvement as a law student in a high-profile case that set national precedent and revolutionized asylum law in the U.S.

The case was that of Fauziya Kassindja, a 17-year-old girl who had fled Togo in fear of a forced polygamous marriage and a tribal practice known as female genital mutilation.  After an uphill legal battle, Fauziya was granted asylum in 1996 by the US Board of Immigration

Appeals. This decision opened the doors to gender-based persecution as grounds for asylum. Using her portion of the proceeds from a book she and Fauziya co-authored about the case (Do They Hear You When You Cry? Delacorte Press, 1998), Layli established Tahirih.

Prior to joining Tahirih as Executive Director, Layli was an attorney at the law firm of Arnold & Porter where she practiced international litigation and maintained a substantial pro bono practice. Prior to joining Arnold & Porter, Layli was an attorney-advisor at the U.S. Department of Justice, Board of Immigration Appeals. Layli was named Newsweek/Daily Beast’s 150 Most Fearless Women in the World, GoldmanSach’s Top 100 Most Innovative Entrepreneurs, and won the Washington Post Award for Management Excellence. She lives in Virginia with her husband and three young children.

As Executive Director, Paul oversees all activities of the Wayfarer Foundation.

After a career which has included hospitality, technology, education and entertainment, perhaps the most important credential he has for leading the Wayfarer Foundation is his lived experience. That experience led to him co-founding his first NGO in 1994, and he has since worked with low-income communities in Bolivia, San Bernardino, San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles.

He is a passionate advocate for people struggling with inequality, poverty and homelessness—all issues he believes are solvable. This belief drives him to seek partners and collaborators who work in their own communities to deliver much needed services with dignity, love and compassion.

Paul believes that everyone deserves the chance to flourish and that dignity, agency and opportunity can change lives. He sees it happening every day.

Full-Circle Learning began its first pilot project in 1992, in the aftermath of the Los Angeles civil unrest. In the years that followed, it evolved into not only a nonprofit organization but a universal educational model, synchronizing human development and community development in the classroom, from colleges to village schools.

In response to requests from educators in 34 nations, mostly in the developing world, FCL helped schools guide their learners to apply character strengths and academic skills to benefit the human family, locally and globally. The organization served 483,000 learners in 2018-2019 alone, offering free teacher training, student scholarships, school site assistance, and capacity building programs.

Students have recently taken on the impacts of poverty, climate change, public health hunger, gender equity, literacy, elder care, social justice, and peace in the effort to embrace their role as society’s change agents and humanitarians. An unpaid board supports their effort, with in-country volunteers and regional facilitators adapting the programs to the needs of each region.

Founder Teresa Henkle Langness, Ph.D., spent most of her career as a writer. She became an author in multiple genres, writing 50 books or book-length works. She worked for textbook companies and curriculum developers during the early years of Full-Circle Learning’s development. She simultaneously officiated on boards that address the environment, public health, and human relations issues while serving as the founding board president of Full-Circle Learning. A recipient of dozens of writing awards, she also received the 2014 John Anson Ford Award and nominations for the 2000 Gustavus Meyers Human Rights Book Award and the 2019 Yidan prize.

Day 4 with Ludwig Tuman (Choral Tales Project) and Barbara Marino (Women On The Move)

FLudwig Tuman is an international award winning composer and a producer.  He is also active as a performing pianist, teaching artist, and writer.  Having founded and developed the Choral Tales Project, he serves as its composer and artistic director.

Using original choral music and dance, the Choral Tales Project tells inspiring folk tales from cultures around the world.  Both light-hearted and serious, the selected stories are gems which speak in the authentic voice of the world's peoples and draw on a universal body of wisdom.  Each story has its own theme, such as compassion, generosity, human rights, equality of women and men, and living in harmony with nature.

Each story also represents one of the many cultures in the world.  Taken together, the

works of the Choral Tales Project illustrate humanity’s common aspirations, and promote an appreciation both for cultural diversity and for the oneness of humankind.

The project produces the tales as videos, in which each tale is acted out in dance while the choir tells the story through song.  The videos will be promoted to the general public, to community choirs, and to the music and dance departments of colleges and universities in the US and abroad.  The first three productions were based on tales from Scotland, China, and Tanzania.  Plans for the next stage involve tales from the United States, Mexico, India, and possibly the Middle East.  Many more productions are envisioned as the project adds to its representation of human diversity.

Josie is a 12-year-old philanthropist and inspirational speaker who lives in Bellevue Washington. She started her own charity project, Josie’s Well, when she was seven, providing clean water access to villages in Ghana. She funded her first well by the time she was eight years old, with a donation of $10,000, by setting up neighborhood sidewalk water stands for her project “Water for Water for Africa”, and organizing fundraisers with local businesses. Now, as a seventh grader in Seattle, Josie has donated over $70,000, enough to fund ten wells in Ghana, in cooperation with Seattle-based non-profit, Water Access Now.

In July 2019, Josie visited ten villages in northern Ghana, which all lacked access to clean

water a year ago. She travelled with a delegation of Josie's Well partners and donors, organized by Water Access Now, commissioning eight new wells at these villages, visiting an active drilling project, and connecting with one community that qualified for future water access projects. In a public ceremony in the Ghanaian village of Obuasi, Josie addressed the village about clean water, and commissioned a new well by cutting the ribbon and drinking from the well with the village's chief, who returned the gesture by declaring her Queen Mother, an honor bestowed upon her, in his words, “because she owns the community.”

She has spoken on a variety of media platforms and in person on stages in front of entrepreneurs, non-profits, and to villages in Ghana about the need for clean water access. She has met privately with non-profit and humanitarian leaders including Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, and spoken to schools with her own message about the difference between what it means to be a “future leader” or a “young leader.” Josie has won national and local awards for her charitable efforts, including Youth Services of America’s Everyday Young Heroes, and Evening Magazine/Kaiser Permanente’s “12 Under 12”, honoring kids under 12 years old who are making a difference in the world.
