CONFRONTING THE RISE OF SCHOOL BOARD DISRUPTIONS
Throughout the country and in Illinois, we have seen the rise of well-funded disinformation campaigns targeting school boards and educators.

This event will cover: Who’s behind the disinformation campaign around masks/vaccines mandates, an erosion of LGBTQ+ rights and the way race is being taught in our schools? How can we band together to support our school boards and staff who are being threatened and to protect public education?

Hear from an excellent panel and connect with others around Illinois who are organizing in their communities to stand up for inclusion, safety, and teaching a full and accurate history in our schools that protects all students

Panelists include:
-- Jennifer Berkshire, Author A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door
-- State Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas, Former VP Policy for Erikson Institute and ISBE board secretary and member
-- Nathaniel Rouse, Director of Equity, Race, and Cultural Diversity Initiatives, Barrington 220
-- Julie Harris, Educator of 31 years Tinley Park CCD146


Hosted by Indivisible Illinois, Illinois Families for Public Schools, Indivisible Illinois Social Justice Alliance and more.
