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