Facing History and Ourselves is a nonprofit, international educational and professional development organization that works to engage students of diverse backgrounds to examine racism, prejudice, and anti-semitism to promote a more humane, informed citizenry.
The site has resources to help students make connections between history such as genocide and human rights movements, and moral choices they confront in their own lives to build safe and inclusive schools. It includes instructional materials such as readings, videos, and books, and events, courses, and training such as professional development workshops for teachers.
