Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Mission: We educate people about education. Vision: We create exhibitions and events to educate communities about the learning process and the role and importance of education in a democratic society. Our goal is to raise social awareness of how education shapes our children, to build respect for the teaching profession, to promote citizens to action, and to inspire change in educators.
MOTAL creates exhibitions and activities about learning--the past, present, and the future of learning--for the general public. Recent exhibitions have shown how education has been made accessible to previously overlooked populations. Since the first traveling exhibition opened in Long Beach in 2007, interest among educators, community leaders, and the public has grown. Designed to raise social awareness of the power and future of education--educating people about education--engaging, interactive, and creative exhibitions travel the country encouraging citizens to action, building respect for the teaching profession, and inspiring change in educators. MOTAL is home to a growing collection of educational artifacts with stories waiting to be shared. These artifacts will be preserved for research and a continuous record of the changing world for future generations.
