Tolerance Speakers Bring Powerful Story To Saugus High

season-of-div-tim-matthew-web

Two men who have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of people after sharing their stories at the Museum of Tolerance and in a film shown by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department SHARE Tolerance program will visit Saugus High School Tuesday night to talk about discrimination and hate crimes.

 

 

Tim Zaal and Matthew Boger, who began their relationship from distinctly different backgrounds and now work together to promote tolerance will speak at 7 p.m. in the school’s lecture hall and the public is invited.

In a film used by SHARE program facilitators, Zaal and Boger tell their stories – Zaal talking about his involvement with a neo-Nazi group that had a violent bent and Boger about his parents’ difficulty in accepting his homosexuality.

Each story is gripping, but the outcome is remarkable. After spending time in prison for an attack in which he kicked a man in the head and left him for dead, Zaal leaves his brutal past behind and begins to change. Part of his reformation involved teaching young people about acceptance and reasonable ways to resolve conflict. One group wanted to go to the Museum of Tolerance and Zaal made arrangements for a speaker from the Museum to help with the group.

The speaker was Boger, who made small talk with Zaal as they planned the group presentation. As they discussed their past, the men came to the shocking realization that Boger was the victim Zaal had left in the West Hollywood street that long-ago night.

Greg Lee, Diversity Coordinator for the William S. Hart District, said that the men are making this special appearance as part of the City’s Season of Diversity and in cooperation with the Human Relations Forum.

No RSVP is required, but seating is limited. Admission is free. The presentation will be held in the “S” lecture hall on campus.
