Why Facing History

The rising incidence of hate crimes and street violence highlight the fragility of our communities and the need to keep renewing and strengthening our democracy together.

Through rigorous historical analysis combined with the study of human behaviour, Facing History’s approach heightens students’ understanding of racism, religious intolerance, and prejudice; increases students’ ability to relate history to their own lives; and promotes greater understanding of their roles and responsibilities in a democracy.
