I Am Human - Coming Soon from izzit.org!


"It's very tempting to say, let's just forget it. I'm a human being."

The multiracial population in America is increasing. And it seems like most people – and society as a whole – would like these folks to "pick a side." To identify as one race or the other.

But as demographics shift from separate races to more of a continuum, who gets to decide how these individuals identify?




Meet several multiracial individuals, and hear about their experiences. What implications does this have for our society? Can we move beyond race?

New Release from izzit.org - Read All About It!


We just released another new educational video, Read All About It! Members can stream and download this video now from izzit.org. You can also watch this video from YouTube and Vimeo.

Don’t stop the press! 

Once upon a time, it was forbidden to criticize the king. All information was kept close to the king, in his inner chambers, far, far away from the people he ruled. 

Why? Because knowledge is power. And the king didn’t want the people to have power. He certainly didn’t want them to criticize the way he ran things. 

Enter the concepts of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Most people think these started in America. But another country actually codified freedom of the press in its constitution before the U.S. did. Find out which country, and explore why this matters more than ever in today’s age of information overload. 

Learn about the power of a free press to keep citizens informed and government in check.
