Los Angeles

Serving educators throughout Southern California, our Los Angeles office also works closely with many area school systems, including the Los Angeles United School District.

Upstander Celebration

Each year, we invite our Los Angeles Partnership Schools to nominate an individual or group that has demonstrated the qualities of an Upstander in their school community.

Since 1994, we have been building partnerships with and supporting Southern California educators, schools, and districts. 

Our Los Angeles office partners deeply with schools where students take several Facing History courses during their middle or high school years. As part of this network, schools embrace Facing History's core themes as foundational to their schools' mission and weave Facing History content and teaching strategies throughout the school: in classes, advisory groups, faculty meetings, and school community activities.

Our network in Southern California includes districts, schools, and educators from across Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego County, and beyond.


Our Impact


There are over 1500 schools in Southern California with Facing History trained educators.


We have supported over 24,000 area educators with Facing History guidance and resources.


If my involvement with Facing History has taught me anything, it’s taught me to challenge assumptions, ask questions, and encourage dialogue.
