In this plenary, participants will have the opportunity to hear from leaders and experts about the attacks on equity and critical race theory (C.R.T.) taking place across the country. So-called anti-critical race theory bills have been introduced, and in some cases passed, in states across the country, threatening equity and diversity in our schools and, ultimately, threatening our democracy. We will have a candid conversation about what these efforts to ban C.R.T. are really about and what is being done — and what can be done — to combat them across the nation.
