Young people need to learn the people’s history so they can be leaders for the social change we all so desperately need.

Right now, the world can seem a hopeless place. But there is hope if our teachers share true stories of the power of collective action. I didn’t get to hear that story until I read A People’s History of the United States in college. I don’t want our children to be 20 before they get the chance. That’s why I support the Zinn Education Project.
