Henry Gardner was the Know-Nothing Governor of Massachusetts who led the effort to persuade lawmakers to adopt a state constitutional amendment that blocks greater access to school choice. Today, his State House portrait hangs next to the Main Entrance to the House of Representatives.

Bigoted and antiquated state legal barriers prevent Massachusetts’ K-12 students and families  from choosing private and parochial school options through educational vouchers and tax credits. Please join us for a public forum with Former Boston Mayor and Ambassador to the Vatican Raymond Flynn and a panel of nationally recognized experts on education and religious freedom as they discuss Massachusetts’ anti-Catholic past and the legal vestiges of Know-Nothing nativism that still limit school choice.
