The MAGA War on Our Schools- Yolo County local action:
September 24, 1pm
The MAGA war on our schools is a deliberate effort by conservative political strategists to influence educational policies in line with their polarizing political objectives. They push for book bans, resist inclusive educational approaches, and inject politics into school board matters.It’s a nationwide strategy to attack education, and we’re seeing multiple attacks here in Yolo County. A Woodland school board member referred to transgender people as a “social contagion” and stated that the “normalization of transgender identity” has had “unintended consequences.”
This trustee, Emily MacDonald, needs to be recalled! Whether or not you live in the part of Woodland (mis)represented by this trustee, it is critical to send a message that Yolo County does not tolerate this type of bullying behavior by public officials. A recall petition has been started, and help is urgently needed to gather signatures before the six-week deadline. Please help by volunteering or donating at recallmacdonald.org. A special campaign event will be held on Sunday, September 24, 1 p.m. at Christiansen Park (corner of Beamer and Walnut Streets) where we will join the Recall campaign leaders, hear about the campaign, and then go out and spend some time knocking on the doors of voters likely to be supportive of the issue and tell them about the issue and the opportunity to sign the petition. Please consider joining this fun event.
