People who we label and understand today as LGBTQ have always existed--in every part of humanity--but the absence of these identities in our nation’s classrooms means that students never learn the stories of people and events that were critical to the founding and shaping of the United States. Erasing this history teaches students that LGBTQ people never existed. Our Intersections & Connections curriculum is changing this!
Our classroom resources unerase important histories, ensuring dignity and equitable representation for all K-12 students in the story of "We the people." And our whole-school approach and sustainable model are ensuring educators are well-supported.
Reaching the hearts and minds of every school staff member is the first step in paving the way for lasting societal change. We include ALL school staff in the introduction to our curriculum to address the social, cultural, and political fear that invariably accompanies the teaching of LGBTQ history, especially because our curriculum connects with topics of race and gender. We address those concerns head-on to help dispel any misperceptions and allay any fear.
We want you to be a part of this critical and necessary work. There are schools RIGHT NOW, across the nation, ready to bring our curriculum into their classrooms but they lack the funding. Your donation and support help History UnErased continue putting life-affirming, life-changing, and life-saving LGBTQ history into its rightful place--the classroom. We need your help. Please donate now!
Our curriculum reflects over seven years of research and development by expert classroom teachers, curriculum designers, historians, librarians, and education policy leaders. All instructional resources are anchored in copyright-secured primary sources curated from digital and print collections from libraries and archives across the nation, as well as the Library of Congress, National Archives, National Park Service, and more.
