“to learn about white privilege, racial oppression, critical race theory and other ideas involving ingrained inequities”
This event is going to involve people at virtually every level of education, but the left still insists CRT isn’t being taught in schools.

Wisc. professors, public school leaders to help host two-day ‘white privilege symposium’
Proponents and advocates of critical race theory in America’s Dairyland have an event to look forward to next month: a two-day symposium on white privilege.
University professors, employees and public school teachers, staff and district administrators alike all maintain spots on the host planning committee for the La Crosse, Wisconsin, “White Privilege Symposium,” set to take place in early December.
Attendees are asked to spend $100 a pop per adult ticket to go to the event, (whether it be virtually or in person) to learn about white privilege, racial oppression, critical race theory and other ideas involving ingrained inequities.
On the other hand, students benefit from a reduced rate of $75 for symposium admittance. It is unclear where ticket proceeds are going.
The team hosting the conference is known as the “Waking Up White Collaborative,” which is notably composed of academics employed by public universities as well as people working in K-12 school systems — from principles to professors — and other roles in between.
In fact, a principal of a La Crosse middle school resides on the Symposium Host Planning Committee.
The College Fix attempted to contact multiple members involved in the “Waking Up White” collaborative that have jobs either in K-12 or higher academia. Most ignored requests for comment.
