Beyond the Buzzword: Critical Race Theory
Free Virtual Webinar
Tuesday, September 21, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Join YWCA Boulder County and NAACP Boulder County for a powerful virtual informational discussion to learn the facts about Critical Race Theory – what it is and isn’t – on Tuesday, September 21 from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is the buzzword of this summer. Barely searched in 2020, the term reached its popularity peak on Google trends in late June 2021, with related searches for “ban” and “Critical Race Theory taught in schools”. Much of its popularity has been driven by state legislators who have introduced or passed bills to ban CRT from being taught in public schools. These efforts continue despite teachers’ assertions that this graduate-level legal theory is not being taught in K-12 schools. It has, however, had a chilling effect: school districts and teachers are increasingly fearful that they will get in trouble for speaking about race, at all.
YWCA Boulder County and NAACP Boulder County invite parents, students, teachers, and community members to attend this webinar to learn the facts about CRT. Participants will learn from a panel of experts, during a moderated discussion, the information needed to challenge the misrepresentations of CRT being used to create barriers for educators who are working toward more inclusive curriculum and equity programming in schools.
Participants will also receive resources to act and voice support for greater equity and inclusion in K-12 education.
