Facing History to Find Common Ground. This event will be held in-person.

Cleveland, OH

Cost:  $300.00

Chairs Amy & Ira Kaplan and Koyen & Baiju Shah invite you to the Facing History & Ourselves Cleveland Benefit on Thursday, September 26, featuring CNN host, bestselling author, and founder of Dream Machine, Van Jones, and Mayor Justin M. Bibb. Together, we will celebrate our 25-year history in Cleveland and gain valuable insight on how we can prepare the next generation to bridge divides and shape a better future.

Our work is more important than ever. Studies show that polarization is on the rise. At every turn we see the teaching of history challenged. But in classrooms across the country, Facing History educators are using our resources to teach inclusive history, foster civic participation, and empower students to work across difference to build a stronger democracy. 

Facing History & Ourselves is more than a name, it’s an active process. Join us in building a world guided by compassion and knowledge, not bigotry and hate.
