School Board Updates

Please join us on September 29 for a behind-the-scenes look at the anti-science extremists keeping Orange County school boards in the news.

Why is so much attention suddenly being paid to our local school boards? Who’s behind all the controversy and confrontations? What’s at stake, and what can we do to protect students? 

 

Come get answers to these questions directly from some of the WIL women leading the fight to keep Orange County public school classrooms focused on science and free from politics. 

This event is free but we are suggesting a contribution of $25. All funds raised will help us 1/ elect more women who are committed to defending science in schools, and 2/ support our endorsed candidates who are pro-productive rights. 

Hear from our WIL Endorsed School Board Members on the FRONT LINE:
