Education

"Until there's a vaccine for prejudice, intolerance and hate, our best medicine is education."
—Southern Poverty Law Center

In partnership with USA’s Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (MVPD) and The Moth, the renowned storytelling organization, Characters Unite is working to reach the next generation to promote greater respect and acceptance. Our nonprofit partners also offer education materials on a wide range of relevant topics.

Student Stories

In each stop of the Characters Unite National Storytelling Tour – A More Perfect Union: Stories of Prejudice and Power -- USA and The Moth are holding workshops in one selected high school. After a week of training, participating students get to tell their own true stories at a special assembly.
