Presentation by Save Ethnic Studies
Members of Save Ethnic Studies will discuss the organization and its goals on Thursday, September 30, in the CSRC Library; the time will be announced later this month. Save Ethnic Studies, which includes educators, students, and community members, was formed to protect ethnic studies courses in Arizona following the passage of Arizona House Bill 2281. Presenters will talk about the legislative efforts that threaten the Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican American/Raza Studies Department (MA/RSD) and the organization’s plans to challenge HB 2281 in court. A trailer for the documentary film Precious Knowledge, about the teachers, administrators, and students of MA/RSD, will follow the presentation.
