AHA in the News


State & Local (US)

An article in The Hill by AHA executive director James Grossman and AHA communications and marketing manager Jeremy C. Young explains the origins of the “divisive concepts” bills and argues that, contrary to politicians’ claims, there is actually “broad consensus” across partisan divides about how the impact of slavery and racism is taught in our schools. Pushing these “divisive concepts” bills, Grossman and Young write, is “the legislative equivalent of push-polling—creating division where none exists, raising fears about something that isn’t even happening to score political points.”
