YWCA Courageous Conversation: Demystifying Critical Race Theory
Thursday, January 20, 2022
YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. The reality is that our nation is built on racist institutions and systems that still impact us today. Understanding that and teaching it are key factors on the road to eliminating racism.
Join our virtual discussion and hear from a panel of experts and academics who utilize Critical Race Theory in their classes about what the theory is, what it is not, and how it is used.
