Empowering educators to eradicate hate. 

The California Teachers Collaborative is the first of its kind in the nation. 

Our statewide network unites California’s 14 leading institutions for Holocaust and genocide education as well as community leaders from diverse ethnic groups across the state.

Through standards-aligned lesson plans, expert-led trainings, and a wealth of educational resources, we empower and unify educators in teaching the lessons of history and about what happens when bias goes unchecked.

By 2027 the California Teachers Collaborative will:
  • Train 8,500 teachers through professional development workshops & institutes.
  • Serve all California school districts with students grades 6-12.
  • Educate 1,062,500 California students.
