Critical Race Theory and mandatory training is sweeping campuses. This panel will discuss the damage being done, and some possible remedies.
On Sunday night, December 13, 2020, Legal Insurrection Foundation will host an online Zoom event on the topic of “How Critical Race Training Is Harming Higher Ed.” Registration is required, sign up here.
Registration closes at about 5 p.m. Eastern. You will receive a Zoom link to the program shortly before the program starts.
The impact of CRT on higher education has been covered here frequently, and will be an increasing focus for us. I was hoping to have a *big* announcement in that regard by now, but it may take a few more days. Maybe in time for the event.
The panel should be really informative. There will be a chance for Q&A.
Here are the speaker bios.
