What is Voices into Action?

Voices into Action is an online 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 problem today. This site will give you the knowledge and tools to speak out, and to go even further by turning your voice into action!

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.

Explore the issues and effects of antisemitism, racism, discrimination and stereotyping.

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.
