Made By Us is an initiative to inspire, inform and empower Millennials and Gen Z as they shape our country’s future. Today’s young adults seek trusted information on democracy and history to inform civic action. Made By Us draws from hundreds of history institutions nationally to provide expertise, resources and deep connection to a fuller, more inclusive U.S. history from a multitude of voices.
Made by Us presents history in relevant, provocative and surprising ways, bringing information from museum cases and textbooks to devices, dinner tables and dorm rooms.
