Register for our Virtual Speaker Series - Teaching Hard History, January 20, 2022 @ 6:30pm

Sixth District PTA is proud to once again be offering a virtual speaker series for parent education and to continue to advance Diversity, Equity & Inclusion work within our region.

The Teaching Hard History Speaker Series follows the passing of the Teaching Hard History: American Slavery in K-12 Education Resolution put forth by Sixth District PTA's current Director of Advocacy.

Join us for an evening with Tammerlin Drummond, Communications Strategist, ACLU of Northern California as we discuss:

Gold Chains - The Hidden History of Slavery in California is a public education campaign that explores the role of the courts, laws, and the tacit acceptance of white supremacy in sanctioning race-based violence and discrimination. This education campaign also aims to lift up the voices of courageous African American and Native American individuals who challenged their brutal treatment and demanded their civil rights, inspiring us with their ingenuity, resilience, and tenacity.
