Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The Voice of Witness Education Program’s mission is to transform the way students see the world and their place within it.
Pretty cool, right?
Folks who know me understand that I'm a dedicated teacher and storyteller and that I wouldn't commit myself to a program that lacked usefulness and integrity. I like to think of education as way to address the question, "What kind of person do I want to be in the world?
That's why'm so proud to be a part of Voice of Witness. Students who read the oral history books in our series hear from undocumented immigrants, refugees, and the wrongfully convicted, among many others whose voices are rarely heard. They develop a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the world around them. To foster these experiences, we support teachers with oral history training, books, lesson plans, and one-on-one curricular consulting.
With the Make History Campaign, our goal is to inspire more students—our next generation of leaders, teachers, history makers—to meaningfully engage with the world. We can achieve this by connecting them with important, unheard stories, and by empowering them to tell their own stories.
Over the past five years, we've offered our services and resources for free to thousands of students and teachers around the U.S. who otherwise could not afford them. This would not be possible without the generous support of people like you, and we rely on your help to continue this work.
