Imagine a Los Angeles where young people come first, and we invest in education, especially our teachers. Where students learn to feel empowered to stand up to injustices and how to treat each other with compassion and understanding. Where diverse communities share a common vocabulary. Where civic participation is part of our ethos. Where we confront the difficult moments of our past to foster a shared sense of responsibility for our future.
LA2050 is a bold initiative that is helping to create the Los Angeles of our future. Facing History and Ourselves is in the running for a chance to win $100,000 from LA2050 to help us get one step closer to our vision for Los Angeles. But we need your help. Vote now!
For more than 20 years, Facing History has been working with individual teachers and schools in Los Angeles. Now, we're partnering with whole schools to provide much more through rigorous curricula, for addressing the challenges that occur in every school: identity-based conflicts, bullying, and violence. We're increasing our role to help schools lead the way in building safe and inclusive communities where students’ voices matter.
If we win this competition, we will be able to add four more schools to our network this year, which will allow us to reach over 10,000 students in our network! We can't win without your help. Vote now and help us spread the word!
