An Act to Promote Racially Inclusive Curriculum in Schools
Dear Friends and Supporters of the Coalition for Anti-Racism Equity in Education,
Welcome to the 193rd Session of the Massachusetts Legislature!
Bills have been filed, and now it’s time to advocate for legislation.
Here’s where YOU come in! We need you to write your legislators in support of H.542/S.288 – An Act to Promote Racially Inclusive Curriculum in Schools. The lead sponsors are: Representative Tram T. Nguyen, Representative Steven Ultrino, and Senator Adam Gomez.
This bill would ensure that instruction in K-12 education shall include the teaching of accurate histories, writings, and contributions of racial and ethnic groups that have been historically underrepresented or marginalized. Additionally, the bill would establish a Trust Fund to support school districts with necessary resources to implement these standards.
