Critical Race Theory or CRT has been the topic of many heated political debates over the last few months in the US leaving many to question what the theory is all about and why so many people oppose it. Participants in this workshop will learn what Critical Race Theory is including its origins and its primary tenets. In addition, participants will learn the connection between CRT and the provision of culturally responsive practices using cultural humility as a framework. The zoom link for this workshop will be emailed to registered participants several days prior to this training event.
