RP3 Agency is the new agency partner of Facing History and Ourselves. The selection, following a review, is part of the Brookline, MA-based organization’s efforts to raise its profile and promote its curriculum and movement, linking history with moral choices today in order to create a more informed citizenry.
RP3 is charged with the overall rebranding of the organization, including redesign of its website. The relationship kicked off with a promotion to raise awareness and encourage the use of educational support materials developed by Facing History and Ourselves for use by educators and parents in conjunction with “Bully,” the recently released film by director Lee Hirsch. The organization teamed with Hirsch after he contacted them based on their reputation as a leader in developing educational programs to combat bigotry and to nurture democracy.
Founded in 1976, Facing History and Ourselves works with educators to improve their effectiveness in the classroom, as well as their students’ academic performance and civic learning. Over the past 30 years, it has grown from an innovative course taught in a single school district to an international organization with more than 150 staff members around the world.
