Fighting the Right: Lessons from Florida

Tue April 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Paul Ortiz and Sharon D. Wright Austin

An online forum from the frontlines with

Paul Ortiz, historian and president, United Faculty of Florida, UF, and

Sharon D. Wright Austin, political scientist, University of Florida

Moderated by Sarah Sklaw, Historians for Peace and Democracy

What’s happening in Florida today will happen in all of the US tomorrow… or sooner!

Education on all levels, and the rights of much of the state’s population, are under attack by forces led by Governor Ron DeSantis. The governor’s “Anti-Wokeness” campaign threatens to eviscerate honest teaching of American history and force people of color, the trans and LGBTQ+ communities, and working people in general to the margins of society. Resistance to this campaign is growing, and at the center of the fight is the United Faculty of Florida and its allies.

Sponsored by Historians for Peace and Democracy, cosponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action
