History and facts are often being denied, hate speech and hate crimes are on the rise, and misinformation and polarization continue to proliferate across our media landscape. Where do we find hope? We find it in our schools. Democracy runs through our classrooms and Facing History & Ourselves is an expert at modeling civics in action for students

Please join us for an important conversation with Fernando Reimers, Director of the Global Education Innovation Initiative at Harvard University, and Desmond K. Blackburn, PhD, President and CEO of Facing History & Ourselves, moderated by Ki Sung, Managing Editor of Digital News at KQED. Together we’ll discuss how we prepare the coming generation to bridge divides and shape a better future.

Event Co-Chairs
Edda Collins Coleman, Susie Richardson, Alberto Villaluna
