The Sharing History Initiative fosters storytelling in under-resourced classrooms and communities around the United States. The initiative provides educators, storytellers, and social justice advocates with free books, free curricula, and access to a nationwide learning community through the Voice of Witness Education Program.
This national book placement program has placed over 2,000 copies of our anthology, The Voice of Witness Reader, in almost 100 schools and organizations around the U.S. since 2015, and provides participants with curricular support during the school year.
This year, the initiative will feature Chasing the Harvest: Migrant Workers in California Agriculture. Chasing the Harvest highlights California’s migrant farmworkers, who make up one third of the nation’s agricultural workforce, and their stories of hardship, bravery, solidarity, and creativity in making a life in California’s fields.
DEADLINE: June 30
