Demand for our work is greater than ever. Give today and help us continue to provide educators with the tools they need to challenge their students to stand up to bigotry and hate.

Give today to stand with us and help us meet the moment.

For more than 45 years, Facing History & Ourselves has challenged teachers and their students to courageously face history together.

“I feel as though I am much more equipped to speak about and teach history in a way that will reach my students and hopefully have an impact on who they are as young people and citizens.”

Facing History Educator

Your support helps millions of young people in Facing History classrooms around the world see that their voices and choices matter.

What does it mean to face our history?

Given the widening fractures in our society, it is little wonder that we’re now embroiled in a contentious debate about the history we should teach our young people and how we teach it. 

Facing History educators understand how much can be learned from history, and our network of more than 400,000 teachers is working every day to empower their students with the knowledge and empathy they need to shape a better future.

An investment in Facing History & Ourselves is an investment in a more equitable future.

Every tax-deductible gift to Facing History helps us continue to provide educators with the tools and training necessary to challenge their students to stand up to bigotry and hate.

“The main thing I will take away is to stand up for what is right, even if it is not popular. I would heavily recommend this class to every student.”
