“We stand at a pivotal moment in our nation’s journey toward justice and equality. Radical forces have turned law, logic, and pedagogy upside down by banning truthful curriculum in our schools. These efforts narrow the scope of our historical narrative, diminishing the vast contributions of Black communities and other communities of color to our nation’s progress. Such efforts underscore a resistance to equity and inclusion. By endorsing the Freedom to Learn campaign, we recommit to championing a full and truthful recounting of American history. It is a celebration of the enduring strength and achievements of those who have advanced the cause of justice before us, and a declaration that we will fight to claim the future we deserve. Together, we advocate for an educational framework that embraces the complete narrative, ensuring that every generation understands the true breadth and complexity of our nation’s story and the critical role of diversity in our collective success.”
