Honesty For Ohio Education
The Ohio Council Of Churches is in collaboration with the Honesty for Ohio Education campaign that is speaking out against HB 327, which is designed to "prohibit teaching, advocating, or promoting divisive concepts."
The Honesty for Ohio Education effort opposes attempts to restrict and censor education around the history and legacy of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, classism, and other forms of discrimination. The coalition also opposes attempts to divest local control from school districts, school boards, families, and communities.
The Honesty for Ohio Education Coalition partners include the Ohio Council of Churches, the League of Women Voters, the Ohio State Conference of the NAACP, the ACLU, and the Ohio Federation of Teachers. On March 9, the group held a press conference at the Ohio Statehouse. OCC Executive Director Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan Jr. gave an passionate speech about why HB327 should not be enacted. You can watch his speech here.
