On October 1, 2021, we will officially launch our #AllHistoryMatters Campaign website. Our first action was a press conference and speakers at the July 27 JCPS School Board Meeting in Louisville, KY, home of Breonna Taylor. With nearly 100,000 students, JCPS is the 29th largest school district in the country. More than 50% of its student population is non-white. Radical right-wing Kentucky lawmakers have proposed two bills that, if passed, would serve as a gag order for our teachers who are already struggling to adequately serve our city’s high-minority, high-poverty, high-needs population. These bills, which are sponsored by white legislators who live outside of our district, as well as the amount of time and energy spent micromanaging educational professionals instead of looking for funding and root cause solutions, represent a classic example of privilege. For information about why we chose “All History Matters” as our mantra, please click here. If you wish to sign up to speak at the upcoming board meeting or support our grassroots efforts in additional ways, please click here.

These are memes we have found our others have sent to us that do a good job exposing the fallacies and hypocrisy of those who want to impose the ban on teachers. If you have a meme that is not listed here that you want to share, please send it to email@example.com.
