Description

This lesson uses Facing History's publication Choosing to Participate. The Reading "Not in Our Town" (pp. 67-74) tells the story of how the town of Billings, Montana responded to intolerance
in their community. This reading and the accompanying website www.niot.org can be used to help students explore issues such as hate crimes, civic participation and universe of obligation. The
website also hosts a five-minute movie describing this story.
