This past October and November, ALBA staff have worked with high school teachers in Ohio, New York, and New Jersey, offering full-day workshops on “The United States and World Fascism: Human Rights from the Spanish Civil War to Nuremberg and Beyond.” In November, ALBA also offered two workshops for educators at the Conference on Antisemitism, Hate and Social Responsibility organized by Classrooms without Borders in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and at the Conference of the National Council for the Social Studies in Austin, Texas. In the Spring, ALBA is scheduled to offer workshops in Seattle. Washington; Dickinson, North Dakota; Melrose, Massachusetts; Madison, Wisconsin; Elmhurst, Illinois; and New York City.

In October, ALBA co-sponsored the screening at Oberlin College of the Goya-Award-winning documentary The Silence of Others, which tells the story of Spanish victims of the Franco regime who seek justice by appealing to an Argentine court. In November, ALBA staff was present at screenings and roundtable discussions at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Michigan State University in East Lansing
