The backlash to the movement for racial justice is upon us and the reactionary forces behind it have set their sights on our classrooms. In the last several months, several states have introduced or passed legislation banning discussion of race or racism in schools. In New York, there are increasing reports of police departments and police unions thwarting efforts by school districts to implement statewide guidelines on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
TAKE ACTION: Tell the State Board of Regents to make sure school districts are promoting inclusive learning environments where truthful information about racism is not censored.
