California Collaborative for Holocaust and Genocide Education

California Collaborative for Holocaust and Genocide Education

The California Collaborative, a first-of-its-kind statewide network, connects educators, genocide survivors, and community leaders in order to support California teachers to effectively teach Holocaust and genocide education in their classrooms and address the surge of antisemitism and hate in California school communities.

Members represent major organizations involved in advocacy and education across the state of California, including Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Avenues for Change: Holocaust and Genocide Education, Cambodian Genocide Resource Group, Central Valley Holocaust Educators’ Network (CVHEN), Facing History and Ourselves, The Genocide Education Project, Holocaust Museum LA, International Migration Sport and Education Corporation (IMSEC), Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, JFCS Holocaust Center, Museum of Tolerance, Redbud Resource Group, USC Shoah Foundation, and community leaders from the Cambodian, Rwandan, Armenian, Uyghur, and Indigenous communities.

In June of 2023, the California Collaborative will hold the first-ever Summer Institute for California teachers on teaching the Holocaust and genocide. Over the next three years, the initiative will reach an estimated 700 teachers and ultimately impact an estimated 70,000 California students.

The California Collaborative works closely with the inaugural Governor’s Council for Holocaust and Genocide Education.

Jewish Family and Children’s Services Holocaust Center established the California Collaborative for Holocaust and Genocide Education in 2021 with support from a $1.9 Million grant from the Marin County Office of Education and the State of California.
