Rally At State Board Of Education Meeting at New Jersey State Board Of Education in Trenton
Wednesday, September 6, 2023 – 1:00PM to 2:30PM
Last month, the NJ State Board of Education voted 6-5 to adopt inclusive language and re-authorize equity in education standards. These measures were met with vocal opposition from conservative activists seeking to erase the discussion of LGBTQ+ people and issues from public life.
At the State BOE meeting on Sept. 6, the Board will hear comments from the public on these policies that keep schools safe for LGBTQ+ students and staff in NJ. This is the last time the SBOE is taking open-topic comments this year, so we must show up for these vital policies. Registration to testify at the meeting has closed, but we are inviting those who didn’t have the chance to sign-up to still make their voices heard at a rally before the meeting.
If you’re unable to join us, you can still tell the SBOE why they must continue to uphold these standards that keep LGBTQ+ students and staff safe by sending the Board an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
