ATTENTION ALL PATRIOTS! Protest, Testify, Press Conference
Tuesday, July 13, 2021, we are gathering outside the Ohio Department of Education building in Columbus (25 S. Front Street) for the Ohio Board of Education meeting that begins at 9:00 AM.
We are asking that you attend to either give testimony or show your disapproval of the board’s decision on Critical Race Theory.
Plan to be there at 8:30 a.m. as we are going to be protesting as members of the board head up to the meeting. After testimony has been given which will start shortly after 9 a.m. (estimated time) we shall walk over to the State House (1 Capitol Square, Columbus, OH) for a press conference that will begin at Noon.
This is a great step to show the State School Board that we do not want this in our schools.
Write to the Ohio Board of Education
If you wish to testify please let us know as testimony is due by Sunday, July 11, 2021, at 5 PM. We hope to see you there! Email written testimony to SBOE@education.ohio.gov
