Facing History Welcomes New CEO Roger Brooks!

Posted by Julia Rappaport on December 4, 2014

On December 1, 2014, Facing History and Ourselves welcomed Roger Brooks as our new President and CEO.

"We really do live in a complex world and disturbing examples of why Facing History's work is so desperately needed are all too abundant today. Young people face major challenges of global citizenship—how they should live in this world, how they should cope with difference, how they’re going to create empathy and build a future that unites instead of divides," Roger said from his new office at Facing History's Brookline, Massachusetts, headquarters. "I'm here to help us make certain that this work continues and grows."

Please take a moment and watch this video message from Roger to the Facing History community:
