WATCH: The Importance of Understanding Critical Race Theory | YWCA Minneapolis
Critical race theory has been at the center of public scrutiny lately. However, many of us do not have a full understanding of it. This conversation with a stellar panel of leaders helps ground us in what’s happening with critical race theory locally and nationally and how we can take action. Together we can help flip the script by calling for legislative action, demanding the truth be taught in our schools and debunking misinformation.
