We are Facing History & Ourselves
From one classroom in Brookline, Massachusetts in 1976, Facing History & Ourselves has become a global organization with a network of hundreds of thousands of middle and secondary school educators reaching millions of students worldwide.
We help educators prepare students to participate in civic life—using intellect, empathy, ethics, and choice to stand up to bigotry and hate in their own lives, communities, and schools.
Where We Work
Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, our curriculum is taught in every US state and over 100 countries around the world. In addition, we have regional offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Memphis, Los Angeles, Boston, New York, and the San Francisco Bay Area. We also partner with entities in Canada and the United Kingdom and educational organizations around the world, including Colombia, France, Mexico, Northern Ireland, and South Africa.
