Not in My State: Sign The Petition Today
The Texas State Board of Education is on the verge of erasing significant amounts of African-American and American history from student textbooks.
Among the many proposed changes are attempts to paint the Confederacy in a positive light, rewrite the civil rights era, downplay the contributions of nonwhite characters in Texas history, and ignore the atrocities committed on our own soil by groups like the Ku Klux Klan.
These revisions are deeply offensive to not only African-Americans and Texans — but all Americans.
Make it known throughout your state that if Texas textbook standards pass, they won’t be coming into your classrooms.
American history — the good, the bad and the ugly — is what makes our country so special. Let’s keep it that way.
Add your voice of protest. Sign the Not in My State Pledge to stop history from being rewritten.
