Critical Race Theory
What is it and does it play a role in children's mental health?
An ACGC Panel Discussion
Critical race theory is an intellectual movement and a framework of legal analysis according to which race is a culturally invented category used to oppress people of color and the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, political, and economic inequalities between white and nonwhite people.
Critical race theory is important because it potentially provides a more realistic understanding of white racism in the U.S. as not merely a set of negative attitudes toward other racial groups but also a body of law and legal practices whose real-world effect is the oppression of people of color, especially African Americans.
This panel discussion is ideal for biological and adoptive parents, caregivers, educators, mental health professionals, and community members interested in learning how to address uncomfortable and sensitive topics.
Join us on Thursday, July 22nd from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
A zoom meeting link will be provided upon registration.
This event is free and donations to ACGC are welcome.
