• Our Story

    There are 2892 miles across the contiguous United States. Each of these miles symbolizes stories of the relationship between people and land that have been mistold, misrepresented, or omitted. 2892 Miles to Go is an education program centered on amplifying local community stories that are too often left out of common narratives of human history. Our hope is to become the antidote to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's eloquent definition of "The Danger of a Single Story" by holding space for and elevating the stories of many.


    Through the support of the National Geographic Society, 2892 provides opportunities for youth storytellers to collaborate with local leaders, educators, advocates, and change-makers to reclaim community histories and stories together. Through this work, our hope is to contribute to the creation of more informed, empathetic, and united communities. We seek to rebalance the imbalance of the kinds of stories and histories that have been available across the education landscape in order to shift the learning experiences of the young people who will inherit this land.


    Each one us us takes up space on land that is rich with history, culture, and wisdom. We believe all of us owe it to those who came before us to learn and those who will come after us to contribute.
