Upcoming Community Conversations

2015 marks a decade of partnership between Facing History and Ourselves and The Allstate Foundation. Over the past ten years, together we have held over 100 Community Conversations in ten cities, engaging more than 70,000 teachers, parents, and community members in meaningful dialogue about today's most profound issues, including respecting diversity, promoting tolerance, and creating social change.

Join us as we celebrate this milestone with a series of events, across the country and online. With the theme of “Stories Matter," we will host distinguished speakers from a wide range of experiences and perspectives, for conversations about the power of stories, particularly those from news and social media, to impact our lives, challenge our collective thinking, and create new history makers.
