THE STORY:

Friends and Family!

I hope you will join me in supporting Voice of Witness, an organization doing stellar work to not only raise awareness about human rights crises, but also providing a space, through their book series and education programming, for understanding, inquiry and empathy. I am so proud to be on the board (and have been for 3+ years now) and below you can read more about the Make History Campaign and why it is so very important that you take the time to make a donation today.

The Voice of Witness Education Program’s mission is to transform the way students see the world and their place within it.

Every day we help students engage with some of the most crucial issues of our time through stories told by the people directly impacted by them. 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 discover unexpected moments of connection and develop a 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 in their own voices.

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.

Make a donation today.

Help teachers and students make history tomorrow.

Thank you!

Kris
