Webinar: National Days of Teaching Truth

Monday, May 2, 7:30 ET

Join Uniting to Save Our Schools (USOS) for a free webinar on Monday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET to launch the National Days of Teaching Truth (NDTT).

We are working in solidarity with other progressive groups to organize the National Days of Teaching Truth as collective resistance to:

·  Censoring and banning of books that reflect diverse perspectives of life in the US

·  Banning the truth about US history including racism, sexism, economic oppression

·  Silencing of teachers’ and students’ voices, identities and lived experiences

·  Encouraging educators and students to betray educators who dare to teach truth

·  Tip lines for parents and community members to report educators that teach truth

·  Instituting legislation and policies that mandate what can and cannot be taught in classrooms

·  ‘Don’t say gay’ and educational gag orders that silence LGBTQI+ students

·  And the many other attacks on public education in a democratic society

The webinar will feature a panel of activists who will analyze the problems this censorship creates for teachers, students, and our society. They will discuss strategies to stop these assaults.
