Dozens of faith leaders and community members are calling on Tennessee House Speaker Cameron Sexton to rescind his recent appointment of long-time activist Laurie Cardoza-Moore to the Tennessee State Textbook Commission. More than 500 individuals, including prominent local faith leaders as well as Metro Nashville Board of Education member Abigail Tylor, signed a letter from the American Muslim Advisory Council sent to Sexton and other lawmakers on Monday, urging the speaker to not only rescind Cardoza-Moore's appointment but also to ensure members of the commission — which oversees the official list of textbooks and instructional materials recommended for use by Tennessee students — are more representative of all students across the state.
