CFER Advisor Eli Steele has just made a timely and excellent film called Killing America: Can the Nation's Schools Be Saved? It is a must-watch documentary exploring the inevitable intersections among California's critical ethnic studies movement, the war on merit, and antisemitism in the wake of the October 7 Massacre.

On Saturday, March 2nd (from 6:30 to 9pm PT), Eli and the cast members of Killing America will host a special pre-release screening at the Guild Theatre (949 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, CA 94025). If you are in northern California, we encourage you to get tickets to attend the special screening. Eli's captivating work features conversations with Bay Area parents and advocates on incidents of virulent antisemitism and attacks on meritocracy, free speech and radical curriculums in the local schools. It explores in detail how various forces and influences within the educational system permitted this hate --- which first targeted whites and Asians --- to erupt with impunity in an allegedly "tolerant" place.

"What happened in southern Israel on October 7th shook the world in many ways. Most of us never imagined that the ripple effects would reach our public high schools in America, but they did and what they revealed was a shockingly strong current of antisemitism," commented Eli Steele on his motivation behind making Killing America.

Eli continued: "This comes after years of anti-Asian and anti-white hate. Where was this tribal hatred coming from? After 60 years of diversity efforts, was this tribal hatred what we ended up with? How could that be. That is why I decided to do a deep dive investigation into the Bay Area schools and my documentary, Killing America, is the result."

The special screening of Killing America will start at 6:30 pm in the Guild Theatre. A panel discussion will start at 8pm after the screening and the event will conclude at 9pm with a reception. Please secure your seat today before the tickets are sold out!

In recent years, CFER has worked with grassroots groups, parents and community members in the Bay Area, to expose the invasion of diversity, equity and inclusion, the assault on academic standards and integrity, and the hijacking of ethnic studies in local school districts. We have collaborated with local stakeholders to help them organize fellow parents, students and citizens in school districts including the San Francisco UnifiedSequoia Union HighPalo Alto Unified, and many more. Many of our local partners and friends are interviewed in Killing America.

About Californians for Equal Rights Foundation (CFER):

We are a non-partisan and non-profit organization established following the defeat of Proposition 16 in 2020, with a mission to defend and raise public awareness on the cause of equal rights through public education, civic engagement and community outreach. In 1996, California became the first U.S. state to amend its constitution by passing Proposition 209 to ban racial discrimination and preferences. Prop. 209 requires that “the state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.” CFER is dedicated to educating the public on this important constitutional principle of equal treatment.


Defend merit and advance equality.
