We curate the stories of courageous Americans who have taken a stand against hate.
When everyone stands up to hate, our country will be stronger, more just, and equal.
The Museum of the Courageous (MOTC) was born to inspire more people to stand up to hate. Founded on the beliefs that powerful narratives compel action and storytelling at scale can change a nation, the co-founders set out to amplify untold and under-told examples of courage to continuously bend our country toward justice. Launched in 2019, MOTC is building the largest collection of stories about individuals standing up to acts of hate based on race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, and ability.
Our team works to realize the vision of the Museum of the Courageous, from award-winning designers and filmmakers to attorneys and researchers. Led by Teresa Vazquez, a nonprofit professional with two decades of experience, our growing community is passionate about ensuring that stories of courage become the stories of America.
