House Bill 1084 would prohibit schools from teaching any lessons that “advocate for divisive concepts,” with the purpose of stopping discussion about white privilege or racism. The bill also includes anti-trans language that cruelly aims to make the life of trans kids more difficult.
These restrictions will impose a huge burden on teachers and leave children with a narrow education aimed at preserving the white Christian status quo. This, along with the marginalization of trans athletes — which is rooted in archaic gender stereotypes based on a false understanding of strength, biology and the proper gender roles for two binary genders — is why this bill should not be allowed to be signed into law.
Please take a moment to write Gov. Brian Kemp and urge him to veto HB 1084.
