ECC Deacon Joan Crawford attended our Rocky Mountain Regional Council meeting this month to inform us of 2 upcoming opportunities to broaden our understanding of the importance of Critical Race Theory and the freedom to learn historical truths that might be uncomfortable or confrontational to some, in the context of book banning and legislative erasure of Black history and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation happening especially in conservative states.
Thanks to all who were able to participate!
Freedom to Learn Summer 2023: Truth-Telling & Real History

CRT Summer School 2023:
Defending the Freedom to Learn
The "CRT Summer School" (July 30th – Aug 3) offered by the African American Policy Forum was devoted to protecting the ideals of anti-racism and promoting democracy by teaching the texts and ideas under assault nationwide by right-wing extremists and their enablers. By revealing how attacks on Black voices and ideas are connected to attacks on Black votes and Black lives, instructors at CRT Summer School provided participants the roadmap to understanding, and the tools for combatting, growing and coordinated efforts to undermine democracy. With metastasizing book bans, CRT bans, laws like “Don’t Say Gay” and the erasure of Black history, it has never been more urgent to connect the dots between the freedom to learn and the freedom to live.
