1:30pm – 2:00pm CT

Democratically elected school boards aren't going anywhere, and neither are the culture wars, but individual school board members are leaving in droves; our groundbreaking research indicates that 68% of current school board members don't plan to run again. With the right training, support and structures, we can unleash the power of a new generation of activist school board members to finally dismantle the racist school board policies put in place throughout history that still cripple our school boards and students today. Join us to learn specific actions you can take to save our school boards.
