What can we learn from each other's stories? What is our responsibility to society? Facing History invites you to explore these questions and more with our "Choosing to Participate" resources.
"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. Both a set of resources and a travelling exhibition, "Choosing to Participate" 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.
Choose Dialogue. Choose Engagement. Choose Respect. Choose to Participate
Get to know Facing History and Ourselves, an organization created in 1976 by educators who believed that instilling intellectual vigor and curiosity goes hand-in-hand with teaching facts and figures. We provide training, professional development, and resources that support the practical needs, and the spirits, of educators worldwide who share the goal of creating a better, more informed, and more thoughtful society.
