Virtual Event on January 27, 2022 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Recently, and the number seems to be increasing, there have been many incidents across the country and around Illinois where school board members have been harassed and threatened about policies around safety such as mask and vaccine mandates. But they go beyond COVID, including issues such as LGBTQ students and the importance of teaching the truth about U.S. history and curricula.
With support of sponsors such as Illinois Families for Public Schools, the League of Women Voters of Chicago, Peoria NOW, and many others, the goal of this event is to help parents, teachers and public school supporters learn more about what is happening Illinois and elsewhere. We need to understand where to begin to gather the tools to confront these attacks and defend our public schools and school boards with grassroots organizing and facts.
One of the respected panelists is one of our own, Julie Harris, Tinley Park CCSD 146 Council President and Recording Secretary for Local 604. Julie has been an educator for 31 years and is currently a special education teacher.
