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.
