No Joke: Leftist Org Puts On ‘Critical Race Theory Summer School’ Conference

The African American Policy Forum is hosting a “Critical Race Theory Summer School” conference, which will teach children how to become activists and malign parents’ rights as a form of racism and sexism.

Taking place from July 18th to the 22nd, the virtual conference will feature various sessions hosted by critical race theorists and leftwing activists.

The conference’s description reads “The anti-critical race theory movement has gained both ideological and political support leading to bills and school district policies that limit the depth and breadth of teacher’s curricula.”

The description also lays blame on the right for “a cacophony of socio-political discourse and racial discord” that the group claims has been caused by the backlash against critical race theory. 

One topic — “Developing the Next Generation of CRT Activists” — will focus on training children to become leftist racial activists. “Students will graduate from this channel with the hard and soft skills necessary to be effective advocates and activists for CRT and anti-racist curriculum in their classrooms and communities,” the description explains. 

The conference is also framing parents’ rights as a force for racism and patriarchy. A talk on the “rise of white nationalism” will focus on the “mobilization of ‘parents rights’ as a way to advance racist, heteropatriarchal policies in schools.”
