Teach Against Genocide Bill
Yesterday, Kaitlyn, Sondi and I went to the hearing in Hartford where the Teach Against Genocide (TAG) bill was discussed by state representatives. Kaitlyn delivered a beautiful testimony, where she talked about our current campaign in the high school and the middle school. We also heard from CT high school students and other organizers (including a Holocaust survivor) who were in favor of the bill. The response from the representatives seemed to be supportive but there may be an expected issue with funding for the bill. We will keep you updated as we learn more about the bill's progression.
