THE VOICE OF WITNESS EDUCATION PROGRAM

The Voice of Witness Education Program brings the narratives and issues portrayed in the VOW book series into the curricula of schools and universities throughout the U.S.

We serve over 20,000 people annually, and our oral history pedagogy has also been used to train a broad range of advocates for human rights and dignity, including educators, writers, journalists, attorneys, and medical doctors.
