About the Event
Moms 4 Liberty and other radical right organizations, masquerading as grassroots groups of concerned parents, have been using their dark money and political connections to take over school boards and pressure school systems to abandon their diversity, equity, and inclusion policies aimed at protecting the rights and identities of all students. M4L is also the force behind many of the initiatives to ban books, curricula, and classroom conversations regarding truths about race, history, and identity. This action dialogue will provide more information on who M4L really is and who is behind them and identify successful strategies that can be used to counter them in our school districts and legislatures.
