Teach Against Genocide Bill hearing

On behalf of WESTAND, Katie Krauss ’08 writes:

It is extremely important that anyone who is in favor of mandating genocide education in Connecticut secondary schools attends this hearing. Currently the Connecticut legislators sponsoring this bill are advocating for a bill that only recommends genocide education be provided rather than mandating it. At this hearing, we will be thanking the Education Committee for introducing a bill that creates a genocide curricular resource guide, but also asking them for a bill that makes genocide education a permanent and sustainable part of secondary school curricula. Come and show your support!

This is a great opportunity and it requires very little effort! WESTAND would also like to film the event and conduct interviews for our documentary.
