If you are interested in helping young people become engaged and compassionate citizens, we’ve got several ways you can engage with us.

Facing History and Ourselves at 40

Facing History and Ourselves gives educators and students the skills to approach today’s difficult issues with empathy, through the lens of history. We believe that by empowering young people to make ethical choices, they will become Upstanders, rather than bystanders. They will change the world for the better.

We’ve been doing this for 40 years, and it’s never been more important. Here are three easy ways you can help us Pave the Way.

Community Conversations are your way to join thought-leaders and community members in a dialog around today's most pressing issues.  

It’s not your standard dinner when you’re celebrating 40 years. Learn and get inspired while helping pave the way for more students.

Become a knowledgeable media consumer and learn how to spot "fake news" with our Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age unit. 

Facing Today - (Re)Building Classroom Community

Educators are in a unique position to help students develop their skills as civic actors, thinkers, upstanders, and problem-solvers. This work isn’t easy in the best of times, but it’s particularly challenging in the wake of the divisive United States election and subsequent protests.

Facing History and our partners at StoryCorps have teamed up to produce a ready-to-use collection of resources to help your students gain critical thinking skills, empathy and tolerance, and a sense of civic responsibility.

Facing History has long championed the idea (and definition) of the Upstander. We know that the heroes we need today don't need superpowers, they need to speak up in the face of injustice. Use this video to introduce us to your friends, family, and neighbors and see if they agree with our definition.

Facing History Together

Facing History teaches us to think about the world in new ways, igniting ongoing conversations about how we can build a society free from racism, religious intolerance, bullying, and hatred of all kinds. When we face history together, we create a better future. Let’s talk.
