She joined with a group of Ohio colleagues, and the Honesty for Ohio Education coalition was formed. This group of concerned citizens and organizations is fighting hate & harm from the State House, State Board of Education and in local communities as the list of threats grows ("Don't Say Gay", book bans, dismantling SEL supports and so much more). She has learned so much, and has much more to learn, and in this session, she'll share 3 transferable ideas for any educator or community member who also striving be an advocate and engage with policy work.
