Featured Partnering Organization: Facing History and Ourselves
Facing History uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and students to stand up to bigotry and hate. At Facing History and Ourselves, we believe the bigotry and hate that we witness today are the legacy of brutal injustices of the past. Facing our collective history and how it informs our attitudes and behaviors allows us to choose a world of equity and justice. Facing History’s resources address racism, antisemitism, and prejudice at pivotal moments in history; we help students connect choices made in the past to those they will confront in their own lives.
Facing History is also here to help in this current moment with a growing collection of resources for remote learning, community connections, and engaging conversations about this complex moment. Please see the following links for lesson ideas, webinars and more.
