Facing History classrooms are transformative for students. They learn far more than history. They learn about humanity. Facing History students learn to follow their moral compass and become Upstanders. The world needs more Upstanders – we need more Facing History classrooms.

Help Facing History Reach More Students

Facing History believes young people are ready and able to change the world. They can stand up for good, become critical thinkers, challenge bigotry and hate, engage in their communities, and strengthen democracy. They just need the right tools.

Facing History provides these tools. For 25 years, Facing History has trained and supported Bay Area middle- and high-school educators to connect lessons from history to events unfolding today. We partner with educators, schools, and districts to empower students to stand up and make a better world. 

With the shift to virtual classes, a contentious election, and a national reckoning of racial inequities over the past year and a half, more teachers than ever are turning to Facing History for support.

In honor of our 25th year, help Facing History partner with 25 school districts across Northern California. Your investment will train up to 1,000 new teachers to empower their students to challenge the legacies of injustice and create a more just and equitable world. www.facinghistory.org/thegivinglist
