Send A Message: Denounce Classroom Censorship in Alabama
Join us in calling on the Alabama Senate and House to vote YES for Senate Bill 180.
SB 180, which was filed by Senator Rodger Smitherman, would mandate inclusive teachings of history and social studies in Alabama public K-12 schools. This bill would require fact-based and historically accurate social studies and history instruction. It would also promote the "inclusion of the history and contributions of minority groups."
SB 180 believes in students' right to learn versus House Bill 7, which seeks to censor certain "divisive" topics in the classroom.
The ACLU of Alabama advocates for the First Amendment protections of the right to share and learn. Classrooms are an important space to learn history, and SB 180 protects the inclusive and fact-based discussion of American history.
