Last week, we alerted you to SB1211, creating an administrative burden on teachers to publish all learning materials online—a political bill serving no purpose but to appease the religious conservative education movement.
That bill got held in committee last week, but is making a comeback in House Appropriations this Monday.
The following day, Senate Appropriations will also hear HB2637, forcing the state to divest from sex education curriculum providers that also provide abortions (i.e. Planned Parenthood), and whose learning materials are "explicit" (read: scientifically accurate and LGBTQ-inclusive). This bill, of course, unconstitutionally revolves around Christian anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ doctrine.
This bill was also supposed to be heard last week but got pushed back. So we have a second chance to get our voices on the record for both these bills.
If you can join us, here’s what you can do:
