Show Your Opposition to Censorship----Wear a Green Feather
Green Feather Movement Sticker
Taking a page from history, the Zinn Education Project is producing Green Feather Movement buttons and stickers to protest censorship like Indiana college students did in 1953. These buttons and stickers will be distributed at the upcoming Zinn Read-Ins and the National Council for the Social Studies conference.

To request your own union-made stickers and buttons, or to contribute to their production, click here.

Americans Who Tell the Truth

Why I Support the Zinn Education Project
Donor David Colapinto
"Reading Howard Zinn's books and attending his lectures when I was in college greatly influenced and provided me with the perspective and understanding to pursue a career as an attorney representing whistleblowers.

"I hope that others who have been inspired by Howard Zinn will give what they can to this project so you are able to reach many, many more teachers and students in the coming year." ----David K. Colapinto, General counsel for the National Whistleblowers Center
