HARRISBURG – Reps. Russ Diamond (R-Lebanon) and Barb Gleim (R-Cumberland) have joined together to sponsor legislation prohibiting the teaching, funding or dissemination of racist and sexist concepts by the Commonwealth and its political subdivisions, including school districts. Their legislation – House Bill 1532 – the Teaching Racial and Universal Equality (TRUE) Act, is aimed at curtailing the divisive nature of concepts that have become known as “critical race theory.” “Our legislation makes it clear that no Pennsylvania school district, public postsecondary institution, or state or local government entity shall teach that any race or sex is superior to another, that any individual based on their race or sex is inherently racist or sexist, or that any individual should receive favorable treatment or be discriminated against based on their race or sex,” Gleim said. “On May 18, 2021, Pennsylvania voters resoundingly approved a constitutional amendment further protecting the rights of individuals, regardless of race or ethnicity, and further enhancing this Commonwealth’s stance toward the objective of treating every individual Pennsylvanian equally in all aspects of life,” Gleim said.
