Save the Dates for our upcoming monthly meetings. September 17 and October 15 will be back at the Peninsula Center Library Community Room and also on Zoom. Due to the CADEM convention on the same week as our normal November meeting, we’re moving it a week earlier to November 12 and holding it on Zoom, since the library’s Community Room is not available.
September 17 — We’re revisiting a theme we presented a year ago: What’s Happening With Our Schools – A Panel Discussion
During his August 19 Townhall at the Peninsula Library, Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi shared a story where he asked students what is their primary issue, and they replied “the bathrooms” they’re terrible, please fix them. While Muratsuchi is sponsoring a Facilities Bond to address this problem, our discussion will be focusing on the far right’s heated attempts to change the school narrative to book banning and student pronouns.
The speakers’ panel participants will be:
- Sara Deen, PVPUSD Board Member
- Al Muratsuchi, Assemblymember and Chair of the Education Committee
- Tim Coleman, President of the Palos Verdes Faculty Association and PenHS teacher
Also joining us are leaders of the PV Students Environmental Advocacy (SEA) group who recently led a Youth Climate March in Wilmington to address the concentration of refineries near schools in Los Angeles.
