SAA Joins the Learn From History Coalition

May 6, 2022—The Society of American Archivists has joined Learn from History—a coalition of organizations that stand for fact-based and accurate history education across the United States. Learn from History supports educators, students, and concerned Americans who seek a better society in the face of censorship, book banning, and increasing amounts of legislation designed to omit troubling events from our history. In addition to advocacy efforts and mobilizing coalition partners to act, Learn from History provides resources and guidance to help individuals and organizations ensure that fact-based history is part of every student’s education.

SAA joins many of our National Coalition for History partners, including the American Association for State and Local History, National History Day, the National Council for History Education, the Organization of American Historians, the American Historical Association, and over three dozen other organizations in fighting for quality history education.
