Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Civil rights education: California Civil Rights Education Advisory Committee.


Existing law establishes the system of public elementary and secondary schools in this state. Existing law establishes courses of study to be pursued by elementary and secondary school pupils. The State Department of Education is required to incorporate, into publications that provide examples of curriculum resources for teacher use, those materials that are age-appropriate and consistent with subject frameworks on history and social science that deal with civil rights, human rights violations, genocide, slavery, and the Holocaust. This bill would establish the 14-member California Civil Rights Education Advisory Committee in the State Department of Education. The bill would require the advisory committee to study and review the history-social science framework developed by the History-Social Science Curriculum Framework and Criteria Committee of the state board, and advise the state board and the Curriculum Development and Supplemental Materials Commission on the inclusion of civil rights education in the history-social science framework and criteria for evaluating instructional materials. The bill would specify the leaders of the entities responsible for the appointment of the members of the advisory committee. The bill would provide that members of the advisory committee would receive no compensation for their services, but would be reimbursed for the expenses they incur while performing their duties. The State Department of Education would be authorized to apply for, and receive, gifts and grants from public and private sources for purposes of supporting the expenses incurred in operating the advisory committee.
