What can we learn from each other's stories? What is our responsibility to society? Facing History and Ourselves invites you to explore these questions and more at our CHOOSING TO PARTICIPATE exhibition.
CHOOSING TO PARTICIPATE was created by Facing History as a catalyst for conversation—in the workplace, home and school, among different races, generations, cultures, and faith traditions—about how we treat each other, and what our choices mean. The exhibition has won nationwide praise for encouraging more than 500,000 people to consider the consequences of their everyday choices and to inspire them to make a difference in their schools and communities.
Coming to the Chicago Public Library, Harold Washington Library Center, August 27-November 11, 2012. The exhibition is open to the public during library hours, and there is no admission charge. Visitors to the exhibit will view a series of interactive multimedia installations about people and communities whose stories illustrate how courage, initiative, and compassion are necessary to protect democracy.
