The Truth(ed) campaign centers student voices around the need for honest curricula that represent students of color and other marginalized identities — it demands that our leaders put truth in the center of our classrooms in order to give us the best education possible.
Across the country during and after the 2021 election cycle, we have seen misinformation and harmful rhetoric spread about conversations about race in the classroom. On the national landscape, we are hearing that these elections have been about education, and yet they are actually about removing information from our classrooms. This campaign serves to shift the narrative around our curriculum and make it clear to those in power that students are calling for truth in our education.
During this module participants will:
- Evaluate the role of misinformation, disinformation and mal-information in the current political climate regarding Critical Race Theory.
- Assess the attacks on education justice in schools (including examining relevant policy and legislative implications)
- Understand approaches and best practice in responding to misformation in organizing
- Practice: Utilize regional breakout groups to strategize tactics to effectively combat misinformation in your region.
