Facing History Now

Conversations on Equity and Justice

During the global pandemic, a worldwide demand for action to address systemic racism has emerged with an urgency that is as great as any moment in the struggle for racial justice. Facing History and Ourselves is proud to contribute to this conversation by bringing prominent thought leaders to our community through the Facing History Now: Conversations on Equity and Justice series. 

These conversations will explore historical racism and other forms of bigotry and hate, leaving all of us more informed, critically conscious, and inspired to fight for equity and justice. Join us as we face our history now to ensure current and future generations have the tools to stand up, challenge the status quo, and create societies free from bigotry and hate.

All events in this series will take place virtually.
