Re: South Carolina House Bill 3728 My name is [Name] and I am a [teacher/parent/student/concerned citizen] from [school/city/district] I am writing to share my opposition to House Bill 3728 proposed in the South Carolina state legislature that may prohibit educators from teaching the full and accurate history of civil rights, the African American Freedom Struggle, the history of violence against Indigenous people, and ongoing racial discrimination in South Carolina and the United States. It is important to me that South Carolina Public Schools provide an inclusive education that represents the history of marginalized people because [Explain why you think inclusive education is important. You can include your experiences, and the history of your family and ancestors as well.] It is important for students to learn the perspectives and experiences of marginalized people in American history and its impact today because [Explain how learning these concepts impacted your development, education, and life.] This bill may deny students the opportunity to engage in and learn from honest dialogue about our country’s history of racism and its continuing impact. This is concerning to me because [describe your concerns and how you think this may impact your school or community?]. Students deserve the opportunity to learn about the history of racial progress in South Carolina and an inclusive education that includes the voices and experiences of marginalized groups. It is important that students learn the truth about the role of slavery, genocide and oppression of Indigenous people, Jim Crow segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement in our state’s history because [Explain why it is important, especially in connection to advancing racial justice]. This bill could prevent students from learning this history and deter these important conversations. For all these reasons, I strongly urge you to oppose House Bill 3728 Sincerely, [Your Name]
