The ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice and the African American Policy Forum are pleased to collaborate on a four-part webinar series on Critical Race Theory (CRT). Over the past year, CRT has been increasingly misrepresented by the Right in an organized, widespread effort to stifle racial justice and gender equity, and weaken our multiracial democracy. Join us for an essential conversation about how we must dismantle the decades-long, broad and regressive agenda of established right-wing networks to replace multiracial democracy with an autocratic, white nationalist theocracy. Hear how successful coalitions in the states have been built to fight back and why we must ground our struggle in a robust conception of intersectional justice.
