GLI issues statement on legislation to limit discussions on race in school curricula

“Legislation to limit discussions on race in public school curricula poses a threat to the progress our region has made in advancing racial equity and attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. As in the past, GLI does not support policy that restricts and/or limits any local school district’s ability to control its own curriculum. We oppose current and future legislation that jeopardizes our work to promote inclusion and attract talent and businesses to our region.”

-Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, President and CEO of GLI
