A press release stressed that the museum's mission is more important than ever. The FBI's 2017 Hate Crimes Report reported a 22 percent increase in neo-Nazi groups and a 17 percent increase in hate crimes nationwide. Funds raised from "Soiree" support opportunity scholarships, allowing financially challenged schools to visit the museum.
