Our Work in New York

Facing History & Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. Our classroom resources and professional development offerings examine racism, antisemitism, and prejudice at pivotal moments in history; we help students learn about the impact of choices made in the past and connect them to the choices they will confront in their own lives. Facing our shared history and how it informs our attitudes and behaviors allows us to choose a world of equity and justice.

Founded in 1993, our New York office helps 17,500 educators create classrooms centered on critical thinking and empathy, reaching students from nearly 3,000 public, charter, independent, and religious schools throughout the tri-state area each year.
