Join Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder in conversation with Dr. Tammy Hodo as they discuss a new law passed in Florida, HB7, that restricts education on the topics of race and gender. The law, fueled by propaganda related to Critical Race Theory, has driven a warning by the University of Florida calling on its faculty to comply with the law or face state funding cuts. The ACLU of Florida has described the law as part of a “dangerous” trend nationwide “to chill free speech in classrooms and workplaces” and prohibit the teaching of concepts like “systemic racism and gender discrimination.” Wilder and Hodo will discuss the reactions of faculty at the University of Florida as well as the movement to challenge the legislation and protect teaching regarding racial and gender discrimination.
This event will take place on June 9th at 12 pm EST. Register in advance for this webinar here: https://gcnyc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ocuE3nlETMO2BiWjZQuLoA Thank you.
