Co-chairs MyKhanh Shelton and Kobie Conner invite you to join us on Wednesday May 24, 2023 for a learning experience at our first Southern California Benefit in three years!
Facing History & Ourselves is more than a name. It is an active process. Our teachers and students know what it means to step into history—and history in the making—and we are thrilled to have you join us in learning and reconnecting with our community. We’ll get to know teachers who are creating equitable and rigorous classroom environments that engage students. We’ll witness and experience how Facing History lessons empower students around the world to stand up to injustice and participate in civic life. Leave inspired to build a more inclusive world. Together, We are Facing History.

Our Work in Southern California
Facing History & Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. We believe the bigotry and hate that we witness today are the legacy of brutal injustices of the past. Through our partnership with educators around the world, we are creating the next generation of leaders who will build a world based on knowledge and compassion, the foundation for more democratic, equitable, and just societies.
Founded in 1994, our Southern California office helps more than 24,000 educators nurture classrooms as places to practice inclusive democracy, reaching students in over 1,500 schools across Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego County, and beyond.
