What is Voices into Action?

Voices into Action is an online curriculum-based educational resource dedicated to providing students with access to information on issues regarding human rights, prejudice, and hatred. Designed by curriculum experts, this program utilizes a wide variety of media to present compelling information on a history of human suffering, stemming from social injustice that is still a growing problem today. Explore thought-provoking issues with your students by accessing our lessons and resources on antisemitism, racism, discrimination and stereotyping.

FAST is dedicated to speaking out against antisemitism, the oldest hatred in human history, and to funding educational projects to combat all forms of intolerance. Our key goal is to teach young people that hatred has no place in Canada. By speaking out and taking action, all Canadians can feel safe, secure, and empowered.

FAST thanks Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman for their generous support.

Why teach Voices into Action?

While meeting curriculum requirements, you can help students become better people, and make your classroom a better place for learning. Our media resources, along with teacher-led dialogue, give students many perspectives to consider, with opportunities for critical thinking and creative response. By understanding the history of human rights issues in Canada and around the world, they will also gain insight into current issues that occur in their world and their classrooms. Prejudice, discrimination, and hatred have existed throughout history, but cyberbullying is a new manifestation of social injustice.

  • History repeats itself
  • Bystander apathy can lead to atrocities
  • Antisemitism is on the rise
  • Discrimination and prejudice is harmful
  • The past connects to the present
