School boards across the country are facing mounting pressure from parents to scrap critical race theory (CRT) from their curricula, and now that pressure is showing its face in one of the most unlikely of places: San Francisco.

Parents and activists in the city have organized an effort to recall three members of the San Francisco school board, arguing they have implemented racist teaching policies, held the district back from reopening after the pandemic, and sent the city’s schools “spiraling into financial crisis.” The petition requires 51,325 signatures by Sept. 7 to trigger recall elections for President Gabriela López, Vice President Faauuga Moliga and Commissioner Alison Collins.

“So much of who I am and how I am in this world has gotten lost due to this targeted smear campaign to label me as a racist to slow the stop of equity that I have engaged in over the years,” Collins said April 1. “I will unapologetically pursue equity and empowerment of Black, Latin, Asian, Arab, and other communities regardless of the opportunistic and meritless attacks directed towards me.”
