Help publish this resource

This is a campaign to fund the production of a new educator resource called: Rethinking Sexism, Gender, and Sexuality
The project is halfway to its $20,000 fundraising goal, but another $10,000 is needed in the next two weeks to make it happen. Help build momentum toward the finish line. Send the campaign link to all of your friends, family members, and colleagues. Tell them why it’s important to you that this book is published. Watch the video which features the story and voices of Rethinking Sexism, Gender, and Sexuality. Post it onward.  We need more resources like this in our classrooms to help young people understand their world, and influence it for the better.
