Join us in Montgomery for a night of unity, art, and profound understanding as we partake in a nationwide celebration to welcome Amal on her monumental journey. Even if you're miles away from the 36 towns gracing her route, you can still be a part of "Amal from Afar: Tonight, I am not alone." Our collaborative partners are Child Protect, Red Bluffs, and the Hindu Temple of Montgomery. They will present an evocative video projection of Little Amal. Watch her find solace in sleep, set against the comforting lullabies of the world-renowned Yo-Yo Ma.
We are thrilled to have each of our esteemed partners channel their creativity into events, either grand or intimate, focusing on the vulnerable image of a sleeping child. This is an invitation to come together - be it with friends, family, or your entire community - and embrace the profound act of offering kindness, safety, and protection
