New Business Item 31 (2019)Adopted
Utilizing existing communication resources, the NEA shall publicize the investigation that has uncovered state and federal funding for confederate museums, shrines, and groups that present a distorted view of history and perpetuate racist idealogy (www.smithsonianmag.com/history/costs-confederac-special-report-180970731/).
It is imperative that our members are aware of the twisted history that is shared with students on class trips and that taxpayers are funding these sites.
