Facing History and Ourselves’ mission is to use lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. Facing History believe the bigotry and hate we witness today are the legacy of brutal injustices of the past. Only by facing our collective history can we hope to transform and heal; only by equipping the next generation with the tools of civic agency can lasting change take root and grow. They provide educators with academically rigorous resources, and train them in proven student centred strategies that focus on cultivating engaged and informed citizens. Facing History has long been a lifeline for educators urgently seeking to help students make sense of the world around them, their active global network of over 116,000 educators reaches millions of students annually. Facing History has been named by CNN and Brookings as a leader for these times.
