Mission Statement:
Founded in 2007 by historian Howard Zinn with a group of artists, educators, and activists, Voices of a People's History of the United States is a non-profit social justice organization using performing arts and educational programs based on primary source materials to bring to life the extraordinary history of the ordinary people and movements that made the United States what it is today. By giving public expression to rebels, dissenters and visionaries from our past and present, Voices seeks to educate and inspire a new generation working for social justice. Sometimes, to know where we are going, we need to know where we have been.
