Public schools serve ALL students: Black and Brown, those with disabilities, English learners and low-income children who are typically excluded from private schools. We can not allow to bully public schools into giving away badly needed public funds.

Public schools serve the vast majority of U.S. students; DeVos’ rule would harm their ability to meet the needs of students during the pandemic. 🗣️ public school students across the country need the resources Congress intended for them during this critical time!

Under the rule, school districts must divert more funding for “equitable services'' to private school students than the law allows or face burdensome restrictions on the use of those funds in their public schools.

We counted 125 rallies, marches and protests organized by far-right extremists in the past 3 years. 74 of these events took place in 2017 alone. But recently, the hate movement has resorted to more authoritarian means of achieving their political goals.

Accelerationism is the belief held by white nationalists that they must use violence to bring about the collapse of society in order to create a white ethnostate.

Populist right-wing political parties can be a gateway to radical, violent, white power groups—like accelerationist hate groups The Base & Atomwaffen Division. That's how The Base, a US-centered white nationalist network, started recruiting in Australia.
