The 1619 Project and Cotton’s bill appear to have had an effect on Illinois State Representative La Shawn Ford (D-Chicago). As you may know, Ford recently called on the Illinois State Board of Education to remove all history books in Illinois schools, and for schools to stop teaching history until new curriculum can be developed. He said current history books and curriculum “unfairly” communicate history.
Send a message to your federal lawmakers and urge them to support Sen. Cotton's Saving American History Act of 2020 to prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the divisive 1619 Project by K-12 schools or school districts.
