What is Critical Race Theory?
MON, SEPT. 20, 7:00PM-8:30PM EST (Zoom)
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a hotly contested idea. Some state legislatures want to ban CRT in schools. Some say it is an obscure academic theory taught in law schools that is a useful tool in understanding society. What is and what isn’t CRT? What is a CRT based curriculum? Is teaching about issues and history related to race CRT? Learn the concepts, learn the essential questions people are asking, and have an informed discussion without the outrage in this free information session.
Should Social Media be Regulated?
APRIL 11, 2:00PM-3:00PM EST (Zoom)
