Scholar Advocacy and Incorporating the FAIR Education Act

Sunday, January 8, 2017: 9:40 AM
Mile High Ballroom 1A (Colorado Convention Center)
Don Romesburg, Sonoma State University
Don Romesburg will describe his role as a lead scholar-advocate for the incorporation of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history into the Framework revision. As a representative of the Committee on LGBT History, Don coordinated with historians from around the country as well as statewide LGBT advocacy organizations to ensure that the newly revised Framework took an expansive and transformative approach to the inclusion of LGBT history as required by the state's groundbreaking FAIR Education Act. He will discuss the strategies, challenges, opportunities, and outcomes of the Framework revision process from the perspective of an outsider seeking substantial revision and inclusion.
