As part of the History Center’s pilot Civic Empathy Project, History Center staff worked with 15 of its Affiliates Program sites to develop exhibitions that prioritize building empathy and taking action to further civic engagement. Each site identified a relevant story from their community’s history and developed a small exhibit that demonstrates how civic action brought about positive change. The sites then linked that story to a current need in their community. By highlighting actions that address that need, they connected history to civic action, providing a way for visitors to make a difference in their communities.

Learn how these calls to action, rooted in historic precedent, demonstrate how change for the collective good can be made by active, informed, empathetic citizens.
