100 Days to Inspire Respect

Modeled after the aggressive 100-day agenda initiated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt when he took office in 1933, 100 Days to Inspire Respect will run from Jan. 20 through April 29. During those 100 days, we will release a new IWitness activity, mini lesson or another resource each day based on testimony from the Institute’s Visual History Archive.
