How to Resist our State Legislature’s Anti-CRE and Anti-Q+ Initiatives

Part of the Across the Divide Conference
Leading Through Innovation and Creativity for Transformative Inclusion

The Robert E. Strippel Memorial Fund for Continuing Dialogue on Justice and Human Rights has over 40 years of experience facilitating critical social justice conversations on and off campus. Lisa Vahey, from Honesty for Ohio Education, will partner with the Strippel Memorial Fund Program to lead this interactive workshop. Workshop facilitator Vahey will educate participants on the school-related anti-CRE and anti-Q+ bills and laws currently active at the Ohio statehouse and will demonstrate how we can push back against these hate and harm-based initiatives.

Conference registration is open until March 24th, 2023.
