La Raza Studies Tour coming to a campus near you

La Raza Studies Tour

Teachers and students from Arizona will tour California over the coming weeks to raise awareness about threats to multicultural and ethnic studies courses.

The contingent will discuss Arizona’s recently passed House Bill 2281, which outlaws the teaching of Ethnic Studies in schools.

The tour will include a screening of a clip from upcoming PBS documentary “Precious Knowledge,” which follows the lives of several students at Tucson High School while investigating the history of the bill and the conflicts it has created.

Among the sponsors of the tour are CFA’s Council for Affirmative Action and Latino/Latina Caucus.
