Kaye Herranen

THE STORY:

As a history nerd, I'm passionate about the Voice of Witness Education Program because it teaches students that history isn't just about old white guys--that history is about THEM and THEIR culture. Oral history projects empower students to believe that their lives and stories matter.

I started volunteering for Voice of Witness in 2013, transcribing and editing oral narratives for several projects.  I have been deeply honored to listen to and help share the stories of Palestinians under occupation, and Haitians recovering from the 2010 earthquake.

The Voice of Witness Education Program shares these voices with students, as well as encouraging them to find their own. Students who read the oral history books in VoW's series hear from undocumented immigrants, refugees, and the wrongfully convicted, among many others whose voices are rarely heard. The Education Program supports teachers with oral history training, books, lesson plans, and one-on-one curricular consulting.

Please make a donation today.

Many thanks,

Kaye
