So, What Can We Say Now?
Join us for an engaging and interactive conversation as we discuss two controversial bills in Florida. These bills have been labeled the “Stop Woke” and “Don’t Say Gay” bills. Together we will break down the bills and discuss what this means for students and educators across Florida. Additionally, we will collaborate on ways we can affect change in our communities.
