On June 21, we aired a segment on AB261, a bill Governor Sisolak signed that mandates that Nevada public and charter schools include the history and contributions of minority and marginalized groups. This includes not only racial and ethnic groups but also the LGBTQ community, the disabled and religious organizations. The segment garnered a lot of listener phone calls.
Advocates from the Native and transgender communities also had plenty to say about the bill and what it could mean to the groups they represent, as well as concerns they may have when it comes to implementation.
In this discussion, we hear from tribal activist and educator Lance West.
