Testimony in support of Racially Inclusive Curriculum in Schools

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Bill H.542/S.288 - An Act to Promote Racially Inclusive Curriculum in Schools is currently scheduled to have a committee hearing on Wednesday October 11, 11a in Hearing Room B-2 and virtual (please note date and room change). We expect the CARE bill to be presented around 2:30p. Our goal is to MOVE OUR BILL OUT OF COMMITTEE FAVORABLY!

This bill would ensure that instruction in K-12 education shall include the teaching of accurate histories, writings, and contributions of racial and ethnic groups that have been historically underrepresented or marginalized. Additionally, the bill would establish a Trust Fund to support school districts with necessary resources to implement these standards. Read more about the bill HERE.

We need your help in conveying to lawmakers the significance of and the widespread backing for a racially inclusive curriculum.

Here are things that you can do to show the Committee just how important it is to Teach us history - All of it.
